  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I have done 3 weeks of the VA handout for should/neck pain. This is due to work ergonomics and the twinge in my right shoulder. I think I have my range of motion back. The twinge is still there. Keep the muscles around it strong. Also, will do the PT's suggested Parkinson's therband stuff- keep your shoulders in your pockets! Don't hunch.

I don't play very often.

  • Perceived effectiveness for PLS (Primary Lateral Sclerosis): Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I feel the stretching I do for my Achilles heel, calves and ankles can do harm. It is difficult to hold myself up but that in itself is a plus. I also have a trapezes ring above the chair we use to dress me and every time I sit in it I stretch my arms above my head using it. This seems to help my shoulders to keep them loose and moving.
