Walking, especially Nordic walking, helps people with Parkinson's disease
Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder in the brain that affects the body’s muscle function. The nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine, a chemical that controls muscle movement, begin to waste away. The symptoms may include tremors; difficulty walking, moving or swallowing; lack of movement in the face; and rigid or stiff muscles. The risk of Parkinson’s disease increases after age 50.
