OhioHealth Delay the Disease Parkinson’s Program Gets Participants Moving Again

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative condition that causes tremors, stiffness, slowness, behavioral disorders, sleep problems and functional decline. “Medicare data shows, in Ohio alone, more than 21,000 people are treated for Parkinson’s Disease each year, with 7,500 new cases diagnosed every year.”

The fight against Parkinson’s Disease is real. This disease robs us of our independence and ability to move. Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. However, for people with PD exercise is not only healthy, but a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities. In fact did you know exercise could actually help slow the progression of PD?

OhioHealth Delay the Disease™ is an evidenced-based fitness program for people living with Parkinson’s disease. The community-based wellness program is an important part of OhioHealth’s care continuum of neurologists and expert therapists working together to address the impairments associated with Parkinson’s disease. The program is designed to empower those living with Parkinson’s disease by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms.

Exercise and Parkinson’s Disease – What Makes Us Different

Ohio Health “Delay the Disease” is a fitness program designed to empower people with Parkinson’s Disease by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms. Founders, David Zid and Jackie Russell are passionate about the fact that Parkinson’s Disease can be manageable with daily exercise; it puts you back in control. This disease does NOT need to define you. Their belief in hope and inspiration for this community is a testimonial to their mission – to help provide this important tool of exercise to all people with Parkinson’s.
