PD Warrior is an exercise philosophy that aims to slow your Parkinson’s down. Developed in Australia in 2011 by two neurological physiotherapists Melissa McConaghy and Lynn Tullock, it has already helped thousands of people around the world. It is now coming to Sheffield.
PD Warrior is a ‘neuro-active’ programme that is designed specifically for the person with Parkinsons. 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.
PD Warrior is designed for people:
• 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 PD Warrior licensed facility with 2 accredited instructors – Karen Hodgson and Bhanu Ramaswamy.
There are no other facilities in the region offering this successful programme.
We are holding an introductory evening on Wednesday 17 August to introduce the concept and then we will be starting an initial programme and circuit based class.
