Degenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease (PD) and multiple
sclerosis (MS) that hit the neurological system can be debilitating. We
specialize in supporting individuals throughout Northshore Chicago, Northbrook,
Lake Forest and surrounding areas with care for degenerative disorders. What we
found with individuals living with Parkinson’s and MS to be most successful is
integrating exercise and a physical therapy protocol into their plan of care. What
most neurologists recommend is a strengthening and exercising campaign. We had
a client in Northbrook who struggled with Parkinson’s for over a decade. What
we did with him was we worked with a physical therapist to develop a complex
exercise and strengthening routine which he did twice a day, seven days a week.
He held his disease at bay with this, but every year in winter, he would go, to
Florida and we’d beg him to do his exercises while he was out of town. One year
he came back and it was like he’d aged five years over a single winter and it
took us 6 months with regular stretching and strengthening to get him back to
almost where he was before he left.
