WORLD PARKINSON'S PROGRAM RELEASES SECOND EDITION OF RANA EXERCISE DIARY FOR PARKINSON'S!
In addition to medications, exercise plays a great role in the management of Parkinson's disease. It is highly recommended by experts that every Parkinson's patient engage in a regular exercise program. However, many reports have shown that only a very small number of Parkinson's patients are motivated enough to exercise on a regular basis. This lack of motivation to exercise has a negative effect on the quality of life of Parkinson's patients. Although Dr. Rana, a Canadian neurologist says, "Exercise can help every Parkinson's patient at every stage of this disease", he also said, "My biggest challenge with Parkinson's patients is to get them to exercise regularly". Since World Parkinson's Program (WPP) is dedicated to improving the quality of life of Parkinson's patients, WPP has released the second edition of Rana Exercise Diary for Parkinson's. This diary is a humble effort to inspire Parkinson's patients to exercise on regular basis. This diary provides illustrations and details of exercises with a daily log which may benefit many Parkinson's patients. This diary can be downloaded free of charge by visiting the resource centre on the website of WPP or by clicking the following link.
Parkinson's clinics and Movement disorders centers can also request hard copies of this diary by emailing WPP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
