Advice & Tips: This is the BEST treatment for the movement problems associated with PD that I have encountered in nearly 6 years of seeking. Following 1 hour on the GigerMD "upside down bike" the physiotherapists put me through a strenous set of exercises perfectly tailored for people with PD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Cost: $200+ monthly
