I was very honored to be interviewed on Therapy Break with the PMD Alliance on pole walking, Nordic walking, urban poling or walking poles for Parkinson’s for fitness and rehabilitation. Therapy Break™ is an interactive, online video discussion featuring a subject matter expert with knowledge relevant to living well with Parkinson’s disease. I was interviewed by Andrea Merriam with an audience that I could see and answer their questions. We discussed the researched benefits for those with Parkinson’s such as improved balance, posture, walking patterns and co-ordination, how to do the ACTIVATOR technique developed for stability and balance and also the fitness technique of urban poling aka Nordic walking for those who have mild symptoms. There were tons of excellent questions from participants. To hear the recorded webinar on YouTube, please click here.
