Parkinson’s

PWR!4Life™

The Cape Center for Movement Disabilities at Midway Motion & Fitness uses the PWR!4Life™ model, a multi-prong and proactive approach for optimizing your brain neuroplasticity (brain change). This type of research-based integrated exercise and wellness programming is necessary to counteract the inactivity, motor deterioration, and symptoms of movement disorders including Parkinson’s.¬†PWR!4Life™ should start at diagnosis and continue “4 Life!” With early intervention and ongoing¬†programming, you can get better and stay better. But better yet, your efforts may trigger positive brain changes (neuroplasticity) that are disease-modifying and thereby contribute to slowing the disease progression.
