Parkinson's Physical Therapy Rochester NY

PWR Certified_Therapist_Final-1024x942 (1).png

Our highly trained physical therapists have specialized certifications for working with people with Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is a complex disease affecting motor symptoms and non motor symptoms in the body.  Working with a physical therapist with specialized training ensures you will get the most out of your treatment sessions.

The Parkinson's Wellness Recovery method (or PWR) is a series of exercises designed to break down functional tasks into smaller pieces that the body can relearn.  The movements focus on restoring upright posture, decreasing rigidity, improving weight shifting to improve balance and improving the body's ability to take a large and effective step when turning.

 

Traditional PT with exercise designed to isolate one muscle at a time might strengthen your muscles, but that’s all traditional exercise will do!  Training with a series of PT prescribed PWR movements will allow the body to be trained as a unit to deliver results that translate into solving real-world movement problems.

Dr. Farley, the founder of the PWR method describes exercise as a physiological tool that promotes brain health, repair, adaptation, and behavioral recovery from the inside. When the right combination of exercise for function, done at a high rate of intensity, is prescribed, you can make positive changes to your brain function! You can train your body to move more efficiently by starting on the inside with PWR moves!

 

Both Lindsay Perez, MSPT and Rachel Burger, DPT are certified PWR Moves therapists. If you are having difficulty with and daily tasks at home or just want to move throughout your day with greater ease give Wellness 360 a call to schedule your PWR evaluation!
