    A response from Serene; Neuroprotection is not an absolute yes/no, instead there seems to be degrees of neuroprotection. Evidence from large scale epidemiological studies across the general population indicate that exercise is indeed the ‘egg’ of neuroprotection, as these studies indicate that people who performed greater amounts of moderate-vigorous exercise early in life have a reduced risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

    Finding the right type of exercise is important for each person based on individual interests, goals and symptoms, and capability. Answers about the types of exercise most suited for each disease stage can indeed only be found from research involving people with Parkinson’s disease.

    While greater symptom burden can rule out certain exercise options and/or make exercise more challenging, hopefully you can still find exercise options that suit your capabilities. Doing some exercise is definitely better than doing nothing.
