Recent scientific advances in animal models of Parkinson disease suggest exercise is a legitimate disease-modifying therapeutic option that contributes to behavioral recovery and neurochemical sparing. These data challenge current rehabilitative assumptions and emphasize the need for neuroplasticity-principled exercise-based approaches to challenge the impaired system. We suggest one novel solution-–the intensive practice of amplitude-–a global motor control parameter. Training a single focus…

TLDR
The best strategy for treating PD is to hope to slow disorder progression and strive to achieve stability with neuroprotection, an integrative medicine and health strategy that highlights five treatment options for people with Parkinson’s.

The Beneficial Role of Intensive Exercise on Parkinson Disease Progression

TLDR
The authors outline the relation between intensive exercises and neuroplastic activity on animal models of Parkinson disease and discuss the clinical results of different intensive strategies on motor performance and disease progression in patients with Parkinson disease.

Neurologic Music Therapy Training for Mobility and Stability Rehabilitation with Parkinson’s Disease – A Pilot Study

TLDR
The research showed that the combination of the three NMT sensorimotor techniques can be used to improve gait and other rhythmical activities in PD rehabilitation and suggest a new compensatory strategy for movement and postural control through the use of the auditory system.

Erratum to: Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson’s disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol

TLDR
Moves of motor performance were equally improved by LSVT-BIG and AOT-SP but high-intensity LSVT -BIG was more effective to obtain patient-perceived benefit.

Neurorehabilitation for Other Neurologic Disorders

ABSTRACT Rehabilitation treatment and the interdisciplinary approach to care may improve the function of those with progressive neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease,

Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson’s disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol

LSVT-BIG is an exercise for patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) comprising of 16 1-h sessions within 4 weeks. LSVT-BIG was compared with a 2-week short protocol (AOT-SP) consisting of 10 sessions

Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson's disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol

TLDR
Mea- sures of motor performance were equally improved by LSVT-BIG and AOT-SP but high-intensity LSVT -BIG was more effective to obtain patient-perceived benefit.

Effect of physical therapy training on gait initiation in patients with moderate parkinson's disease

TLDR
It is demonstrated that physical therapy treatment would be beneficial for patients with PD experiencing gait initiation problems, using the TrainingBIG™ technique and task-specific concepts.

Activity-Dependent Factors Affecting Poststroke Functional Outcomes

TLDR
Preliminary results provide evidence that manipulation of task intensity and specificity and the sensorimotor experience of the task training are the necessary ingredients for maximizing the tremendous potential for recovery in patients with stroke.
