Parkinson's Pro is a course to support the growing emphasis on neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to make new neural pathways given the right stimulus). Trained exercise professionals can now play a key role in helping Parkinson’s sufferers to effectively manage their disease and maximise their quality of life. On completion of the course, students will be able to work with low-to-moderate risk Parkinson’s patients in a one-to-one or small group setting.
