According to a survey from the National Institutes of Health, yoga is recognized as one of the leading alternative therapies for Parkinson’s disease. An online news article reports that the results from the University of Minnesota’s experiment with yoga’s effects on osteoarthritis were so promising that they are conducting the same experiment with Parkinson’s patients. The participants of the osteoarthritis/yoga experiment improved in their mobility and their fear of falling decreased. Researchers hope to achieve the same result with those suffering from Parkinson’s. Studies show that yoga visibly reduces tremoring and increases steadiness in walking. Good news for you: you don’t have to commute to a class for yoga practices; A-1 Home Care has a team of certified home health aides who have experience in physical therapy, and they can help your elderly loved ones practice yoga in the comfort of their own home!
