PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate whether motor training could improve the straightening-up sequences in patients with Parkinson's disease and, consequently, could ease the capacity of the patients to change body's position. METHODS Twenty out-patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (12 males, 8 females; mean age 72.9; H-Y, 1. 5-3) were enrolled in a rehabilitation programme which included exercises for the mobility of the trunk, of upper and lower limbs and of each segment… Expand
Effects of home exercises on motor performance in patients with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
A home-based rehabilitation programme for patients with Parkinson's disease helped to improve motor performance compared to patients who did not take advantage of a regular, professionally designed exercise programme. Expand
The effect of the rehabilitation program on balance, gait, physical performance and trunk rotation in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The 4-week rehabilitation training program focused on mobility, balance and gait exercises improved balance, gait, physical performance and trunk rotations in patients with PD. Expand
Physical therapy in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
This chapter deals with variety of physical therapy methods evaluated in PD, including adaptation of the home environment, both to lessen the effects of motor impairment and to optimize safety. Expand
The effect of physical activity on functional fitness and quality of life in people with Parkinson's disease
Introduction: Parkinson disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease among the aging population. The aim of this study was to determine if 10-weeks of functional exercise trainingExpand

TLDR
Results of the study showed that kinesiotherapy has positive effect on muscle strength in patients with Parkinson's disease. Expand
Comparing the fear of falling and quality of life outcomes following a functional movement protocol among the experimental and control idiopathic Parkinson cases
Background: Considering progressive increase in the senile population and increasing number of Parkinson patients (PP) and their movement disorders, researchers are searching for some non-medicinalExpand
[Neurorehabilitation in parkinsonian syndromes].
TLDR
In idiopathic Parkinson's disease, clinicians must continue evaluating the symptomatic and perhaps neuroprotective value of physical treatment strategies used over the long term, in atypical parkinsonism, physical treatments often remain the only realistic methods to improve motor behavior and reduce functional deficiencies.

Comparison of exercise strategies for motor symptom improvement in Parkinson’s disease
SUMMARY Aims: To evaluate the effectiveness of four exercise interventions on motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Materials and methods: This was a quasi-experimental trial with 89Expand
Exercise therapy, quality of life, and activities of daily living in patients with Parkinson disease: a small scale quasi-randomised trial
TLDR
The findings from this small scale quasi-randomised trial showed that exercise therapy was effective in improving activities of daily living and perceived health status in patients with Parkinson's disease and indeed, exercise therapy could be offered to Patients with Parkinson disease, considering that it is low in cost and usually has no negative side effects.

Validity of the trunk impairment scale as a measure of trunk performance in people with Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Forward stepwise multiple linear regression analysis showed that trunk impairment in PD patients was significantly related to a combination of older age and a higher score on part III of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale, which assesses motor impairments. Expand

A clinical trial of the re-education of movement in patients with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
A programme of therapy was developed for teaching whole-body movement and conscious strategies for overcoming obstacles to movement in daily life and standardized mobility tests showed a statistically significant mean decrease of over 40% in total test time. Expand
Rehabilitation and Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
An improvement in the functional performance of patients is shown and the usefulness of physical therapy associated with drug therapy in a comprehensive treatment for Parkinson's disease is suggested. Expand
Controlled trial of physiotherapy and occupational therapy for Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Twenty-four patients with Parkinson's disease attending the neurological clinic were included in a controlled cross-over trial of physiotherapy and occupational therapy, aimed at improving personal independence and functional activities, such as mobility, feeding, dressing, and cooking. Expand

TLDR
No consistent measurable effect from group training in Parkinson's disease is presented and patients had an overall impression of a beneficial effect of physical therapy. Expand
Effects of Rehabilitation Therapy on Parkinsonians' Disability and Functional Independence
In two single-blind studies, we evaluated the effects of a four-week intensive personal ized physical rehabilitation program in moderately advanced inpatients affected by Parkinson's disease (PD).Expand
Exercise therapy for Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The majority of patients in both groups showed improvements in gait, tremor, grip strength and motor coordination on tasks requiring fine control, and this suggests that exercise is a useful adjunct to pharmacologic therapy. Expand
Physical therapy and Parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is concluded that physical disability in moderately advanced PD objectively improves with a regular physical rehabilitation program, but this improvement is not sustained when normal activity is resumed. Expand
Management of individuals with Parkinson's disease: rationale and case studies.
TLDR
A systematic approach to physical therapy management of individuals with Parkinson's disease is presented based on a model that relates knowledge of the underlying pathology of the disease to impairments and disability and the use of the model is illustrated in setting goals and in developing a treatment program.

Parkinson's disease: disability, review, and management.
TLDR
Patients with Parkinson's disease may benefit from regular medical review and being seen by therapists, and the impact of the disease on the community and the help available to patients and carers was analysed. Expand
Effect of practice on performance of a skilled motor task in patients with Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Patients with Parkinson's disease are capable of schema learning but require more practice than control subjects to achieve comparable levels of performance, which may be a reflection of the fundamental motor dysfunction of the disease. Expand
