Parkinson's disease is a prevalent neurodegenerative disorder for which only symptomatic treatment exists. Gait and balance disturbance is common in Parkinson's disease and is a major contributor to increased disability and decreased health‐related quality of life and survival. Balance and gait deficits in Parkinson's disease are notoriously difficult to treat and are not significantly helped by pharmacological or surgical treatment. The last two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the… 
The Effect of Physical Activity in Parkinson’s Disease: A Mini-Review
TLDR
Physical activity has the potential to improve the non-motor symptoms (depression, apathy, fatigue, constipation) and the secondary complications of immobility in Parkinson's disease.
Exercise for Parkinson's disease.
Running head : EXERCISE AND PARKINSON ’ S 1 The Physiology and Psychology of Exercise and Parkinson ’ s Disease
TLDR
An analysis of the effects of exercise on Parkinson’s symptoms and whether or not the type of exercise prescribed is efficacious in the reduction in symptoms experienced by patients is presented.
Impact of Exercise Intervention in Parkinson’s Disease can be Quantified Using Inertial Sensor Data and Clinical Tests
TLDR
QTUG may be a more sensitive measure than UPDRS Part III for assessing the effect of exercise intervention on functional mobility in people with early-to-moderate stage PD.
Analysis of physical therapy in elderly patients with Parkinson ’ s disease
TLDR
The analysis conducted shows that rehabilitation has a positive impact on the level of depression in the patients and on their functioning, and the therapeutic effect of physical therapy and rehabilitation does not depend on the patient’s gender, place of residence, level of education, marital status, and length of stay at the care and treatment facility.
Theoretical Concept of Impact of Tai Chi on Falls in Clients with Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is considered to be one of degenerative disorders of the central nervous system. According to the Parkinson’s disease Foundation there is an estimated 60.000 Americans that
Effect of Dance Therapy on Balance, Quality of Life And Depression Status in Patients With Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, characterised by the cardinal features of rigidity, tremors, bradykinesia & postural instability 1,2 . Balance
Rehabilitation in idiopathic Parkinson's disease in the focus of the future
TLDR
Therapeutic strategies of rehabilitation in PD are reviewed, considered as an adjuvant to pharmacological and surgical treatments, with the aim of minimizing functional disabilities and improving quality of life.

The Effects of Exercise on Balance in Persons with Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review Across the Disability Spectrum
TLDR
This project sought to systematically review studies that examined the impact of exercise interventions on balance outcomes for people with Parkinson's disease, within the categories defined by the World Health Organization in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model.
Tai chi and postural stability in patients with Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Tai chi training appears to reduce balance impairments in patients with mild-to-moderate Parkinson's disease, with additional benefits of improved functional capacity and reduced falls.
Effects of Tango on Functional Mobility in Parkinson's Disease: A Preliminary Study
TLDR
Future studies with a larger sample are needed to confirm and extend the observation that tango may be an effective intervention to target functional mobility deficits in individuals with PD.
Exploring Outcome Measures for Exercise Intervention in People with Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
Outcome measures at ICF body structure/function level were most effective at detecting change after exercise and revealing differences in improvement between interventions.

TLDR
The hypothesis that patients with PD improve their physical performance and activities of daily living through exercise is supported, and all studies reviewed show that exercise improves overall performance in PD patients.
How might physical activity benefit patients with Parkinson disease?
TLDR
Identifying ways to induce a sustained behavioral change, using specifically tailored programs that address potential barriers such as depression, apathy and postural instability, may lead to an improved quality of life in individuals with PD.
Effect of Balance Training on Postural Instability in Patients With Idiopathic Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
A program of balance training can improve PI in patients with PD and showed significant improvements in all outcome measures, except for the UPDRS and the H&Y scale.
Determinants of disability and quality of life in mild to moderate Parkinson disease
TLDR
Self-reported mood symptoms and axial impairment were the two factors most closely associated with poorer QoL, but comorbidity and bradykinesia additionally contributed to the explanatory power.
Walking economy in people with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The findings suggest that the physiologic stress of daily physical activities is increased in patients with early to mid‐stage PD, and this may contribute to the elevated level of fatigue that is characteristic of PD.
