  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for General health: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Slowness: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Balance problems: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little

Advice & Tips: As of Sept 1, 2010, I am lumping walking together with the other aerobic exercise I do - running, exercise bike, elliptical.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Muscle strain, Soreness, Fatigue

Oct 17, 2009 (Started Aug 01, 2007)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for General health: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Slowness: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Balance problems: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: Walking can be either standard walking or racewalking. The latter is more strenuous than jogging at the same speed, but without the pounding of running or jogging. Once you're in good shape, it's a nice change to try racewalking for a few hundred yards in the middle of a walking workout. It also helps your speed, which is probably something all of us Parkinson's patients could use.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Muscle strain, Soreness, Fatigue

  • Perceived effectiveness for General health: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Balance problems: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: Treatments and drugs can interact with each other. In my case, there was a positive interaction with walking, Mirapex, and Azilect. See "About Me" in my profile. In late 2008, when I walked fast for several minutes (during exercise) I often tended to freeze, and would have to stop walking. A few months later, when I started to freeze I would be able to continue walking, just slower for a few minutes, and then resume. By Oct of 2009 even if I started to freeze while running fast, I would be able to slow down (still running) and keep from freezing. I believe that pushing yourself - hard - on a regular basis (once a week or so) can help alleviate your symptoms and improve you functioning.
