The need for mapping personal goals to exercise dosage in community-based exercise programs for people with Parkinson's disease.

Community-based exercise can support long-term management of Parkinson's disease, although it is not known if personal goals are met in these programs. The objectives of this study were to: (1) examin...

Aerobic exercise is more effective than goal-based exercise for the treatment of cognition in Parkinson's disease.

Little is known about how different exercise modalities influence cognition in Parkinson's disease (PD). Moreover, the focus of previous investigations on examining the effects of exercise mainly on e...

Effect of High-Intensity Treadmill Exercise on Motor Symptoms in Patients With De Novo Parkinson Disease: A Phase 2 Randomized Clinical Trial.

Parkinson disease is a progressive neurologic disorder. Limited evidence suggests endurance exercise modifies disease severity, particularly high-intensity exercise.

Acute effects of aerobic exercise on cognitive function in individuals with Parkinson's disease.

Deficits in executive functions are highly prevalent in Parkinson's disease (PD). Although chronic physical exercise has been shown to improve executive functions in PD, evidence of acute exercise eff...

Cardiovascular Responses During Resistance Exercise in Patients with Parkinson Disease.

Patients with Parkinson disease (PD) present cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction which impairs blood pressure control. However, cardiovascular responses during resistance exercise are unknown in thes...

Motivators and Barriers to Physical Activity in Knee Osteoarthritis Patients: a Qualitative Study

This study sought to better identify the motivators and barriers to osteoarthritic patients practising regular physical activity. This is a crucial step towards enabling each health profes...

Study of Axial Mobility Exercises in Parkinson Disease

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the benefit of exercise versus usual care (no exercise) on impairments and functional limitations in patients with Parkinson disease.

Exercise Study For People With Parkinson's Disease

This study is designed to compare three different exercise approaches to learn which program is best for people with early and mid-stage Parkinson's disease. Results from this study will h...

Effects of Aerobic Exercise in Parkinson's Disease

Aerobic exercise has the potential to become an effective and easily accessible treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD) that can improve both cognitive and motor dysfunction. This project w...

Effects of Physical Activity on the Brain in Parkinson's Disease (PD)

The aim of the study is to investigate whether exercise improves cognitive and motor functions in Parkinson's disease. To test this hypothesis, the researchers study general brain function...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

A condition caused by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes selective destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Clinical features include irreversible parkinsonian signs including rigidity and bradykinesia (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY). MPTP toxicity is also used as an animal model for the study of PARKINSON DISEASE. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1072; Neurology 1986 Feb;36(2):250-8)

A group of disorders which feature impaired motor control characterized by bradykinesia, MUSCLE RIGIDITY; TREMOR; and postural instability. Parkinsonian diseases are generally divided into primary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE), secondary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY) and inherited forms. These conditions are associated with dysfunction of dopaminergic or closely related motor integration neuronal pathways in the BASAL GANGLIA.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, affecting one person in every 500, 95% of which are over 40. It is caused by degeneration of more than 70% of the substantia nigra, which depletes the dopamine (the neurotransmitter involved in pro...
