Parkinson's is the second most common Neurological Disease with rates on the rise. While we don't know what causes it, we do know that moderate to intense exercise slows progression of the disease.
At In Balance Rehab Meg offers one to one Physiotherapy treatment and group classes for Parkinson’s Disease. One to one therapy can either take place in the clinic or the clients home with treatment tailored to specific goals from the client.
Our classes are different in that they are designed by a Registered Physiotherapist. Classes are run by Megan Cliff who is a Registered Physiotherapist in BC, Bobath Trained and has undergone training with Neurofit BC’s Exercise as Treatment for Parkinson’s. Our group classes are motivating, create a social connection, and provide the challenge required for neuroplastic change in the brain. Classes target balance, coordination, strength, cognition and cardiovascular health. They will be also be sure to put a smile on your face.
The initial assessment includes baseline testing, resource and educational handouts and the initiation of a home exercise program (dependent on the time it takes to complete the history and testing). Initial assessments allow the class to be more personalized to your individual needs and gives Meg a chance to know you better. Receipts will be provided for assessments, follow ups and classes - you may be able to submit these to extended benefit plans please check with your individual plan.
Come get your body moving again with exercises that target the movement patterns and intensity you need to combat the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
