Nicole Greene is excited to be able to now implement PWR!’s program as an addition to her non-contract boxing therapy for Parkinson disease.
Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. Boxing exercises have demonstrated that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s, can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier, happier lifestyle.
PWR!Moves is a standalone exercise program that can also be integrated into other exercise approaches, such as boxing. It employees recent advances in basic and clinical science research that suggests exercise and learning approaches that promote aerobics and skill acquisition which may protect vulnerable neurons, repair damaged circuits, and optimize function in persons with Parkinson disease (PD). It is about slowing the disease progression and optimizing function.
The program is built on the framework of 20 fluid movements divided into 4 categories each consisting of 5 different positions. These building blocks The Basic4 include PWR!Up, Rock, Twist, and Step which are performed in Floor, All 4’s, Sitting, and Standing positions and are designed to be continuously repeated in different real world contexts.
No other single intervention or treatment is associated with such a diverse array of benefits as exercise for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Physical activity for people with PD not only results in positive improvements in emotional, cognitive, physical, and non-motor symptoms, but it may also serve as a physiological modifier of the disease process. This means greater levels of physical activity may slow disease progression.
