Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

We examined the impact of an eight-week intervention merging yoga and OT for people with Parkinson’s disease on fatigue measures, activity and participation measures, and the relationship between the two constructs. Activity and participation scores significantly improved after the intervention. Fatigue and activity and participation were significantly correlated. Qualitative data revealed perceived improvements in fatigue management and activity and participation.
