Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery program at Worcester County Recreation and Parks

Worcester County Recreation and Parks has a new program offered to anyone at any stage of Parkinson’s disease called, Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery.

This exercise program is designed to specifically combat the physical symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Flexibility, mobility, strength, and balance are all addressed in this evidence based fitness routine. Muscle rigidity is targeted with large, full range of motion, arm and leg movements. Shuffling and “freezing” are worked on with big stepping movements and focused stability work. This program is fun and high tempo, and most importantly an incredibly effective exercise program.  

Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery will take place at the Recreation Center on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. starting January 7 through March 27, 2019. The cost to participate is $45 per person.
