Find out which sports and physical activities are especially beneficial for people with Parkinson's disease.

Tai Chi

It is a practice of slow, fluid movements that emphasize breathing and concentration.     It has been shown to be effective in improving mobility, balance, and muscle strength in people with Parkinson's disease.     Additionally, Tai Chi can help reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.



This practice focuses on strengthening your body and improving your posture. This is very important for patients with Parkinson's disease, who may experience muscle stiffness and weakness. Pilates improves your mobility and flexibility and reduces the risk of falls.



Boxing, especially the version adapted for people with Parkinson's Disease, can be an effective form of aerobic exercise and muscle strengthening.     Although it may initially seem difficult, boxing helps improve coordination, balance, and endurance.

Choosing an appropriate sport or physical activity depends on the personal preferences, current physical condition, and goals of each Parkinson's patient.     The most important thing is to start with activities that you enjoy and that you can do regularly.     Regular physical activity not only improves mobility and motor skills but also has great benefits for mental well-being, energy conservation, and body cleansing. Always remember to consult a doctor before starting a new exercise program.
