Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

Both group and individual exercise show promise as methods for reducing fall risk in people with Parkinson’s disease. Current research provides only preliminary evidence and does not explore how a reduction in fall risk might affect participation in meaningful occupations and activities of daily living.
