Physical Activity in Early Parkinson Disease.
Repository Usage Stats
Physical activity and exercise improve outcomes in Parkinson disease (PD), however little is known about activity levels in early PD patients.We examined self-reported activity scores and examined associations with clinical characteristics in 383 PD subjects and 175 healthy controls from the Parkinson Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI).Activity scores were 8% lower for PD subjects than HC (162.6±86.2 vs 175.0±78.5, p = 0.10). Higher scores were associated with younger age and male sex. Only 47% of PD subjects and 44% of HC reported activity consistent with standard recommendations for adults.Our findings highlight the need to encourage exercise even in early PD.

I am a movement disorders specialist with a clinical practice focused on the care of people with Parkinson disease (PWP) and other movement disorders. I am interested in ways to improve the quality of care for patients with chronic neurodegenerative conditions, particularly translating clinically effective treatments and lifestyle modifications (e.g. exercise) into the “real world.” While a growing body of evidence demonstrates that physical activity, including high-intensit
