PD Warrior is our ‘neuro-active’ programme at the Hallamshire Physiotherapy Clinic, designed specifically for anyone with Parkinson’s. Medication helps with symptom relief and general exercise programs will keep you healthy, but neither of them slow the progression of your disease. The recent evidence demonstrates that the right kind of exercise programme is the only way to modify the course of your disease.

Karen Hodgson leads the highly skilled and specialist PD Warrior classes at Hallamshire Physiotherapy Clinic. If you are interested in joining a class, please contact us and we can arrange a suitable day and time for you to join us.


PD Warrior is designed for people are:

  • In the early stages of idiopathic Parkinson’s
  • Reasonably fit and active
  • Motivated individuals.

PD Warrior aims to show you how exercise can be enjoyable, but also to show you how to exercise for life so you are in peak physical and mental condition at every stage of the disease.

Hallamshire Physiotherapy is now a licensed facility with 2 accredited instructors – Karen Hodgson and Bhanu Ramaswamy.
