Exercising 2.5 Hours Per Week Helps Parkinson’s Disease Patients


Physical activity can delay decline in Parkinson’s disease patients, according to a study in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease.

Researchers determined that  people who exercised regularly (150 minutes per week) had significantly slower declines in health-related quality of life (HRQL) and death over a two-year period compared to people who did not exercise or exercised less..

Although the study did not determine which type of exercise is best, it suggests that any type of exercise is better than not exercising.
