Abstract Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common, disabling, neurodegenerative condition, and the disease prevalence is expected to increase worldwide in the next few decades. Symptomatic therapy remains unsatisfactory, and greatly needed neuroprotective therapies have not been successfully developed so far. Physical exercise (PE) has been associated with a lower risk of developing a neurodegenerative disease. The literature has been searched, and results have been systematized and interpreted… 
Chasing Protection in Parkinson’s Disease: Does Exercise Reduce Risk and Progression?
TLDR
Randomized controlled trials of exercise in PD have provided clear evidence for short-term benefits on many PD measurements scales, ranging from disease severity to quality of life, and convergent epidemiological and laboratory data with particular attention to translationally relevant features of exercise are presented.
The Therapeutic Potential of Exercise to Improve Mood, Cognition, and Sleep in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
This work synthesizes the existing literature on the benefits of aerobic exercise and strength training on mood, sleep, and cognition as demonstrated in healthy older adults and adults with PD, and suggests that these types of exercise offer a feasible and promising adjunct treatment for mood, cognition, and sleep difficulties in PD.
Parkinson’s Disease: Contemporary Concepts and Clinical Management
TLDR
Treating parkinson’s disease is a challenging enterprise, as the various options should be considered, and often rerouted, taking into account disease stage, motor and non-motor symptoms, andnon-PD concomitant patient features, so that quality of life is maximized for many years, while minimizing risks and adverse effects.
Improved function and geriatric depression scale profile in outpatients with parkinson’s disease through the participation in Lee Silverman Voice Therapy BIG® program
TLDR
Individuals with PD who exercise gained or maintained function and mobility, improved cognitive functioning, exhibited lower risk for falls, and improved quality of life.
Physical Functioning After 1, 3, and 5 Years of Exercise Among People With Parkinson's Disease: A Longitudinal Observational Study
TLDR
Despite the progressive nature of Parkinson's disease, many PWP can sustain a regular program of varied modes of community-based, group exercise over a period of years, and even maintain initial performance levels on key measures of physical functioning.
Benefits of Tango Therapy in Alleviating the Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease Patients—A Narrative Review
TLDR
The present descriptive study outlines the advantages of tango in the rehabilitation of Parkinson's disease’s motor and non-motor symptoms and recommends tango as a useful supplementary therapy for the variety of symptoms related to Parkinson�'s disease.
Effects of depression and exercise on health-related quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Exercising and depression may interact to affect HRQoL and coordination of mental health evaluation and exercise regimens in persons with PD may improve HRZoL.
The effectiveness of Tai Chi for patients with Parkinson’s disease: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The aim of this trial is to systematically evaluate the effect of Tai Chi on PD and determine whether Tai Chi is an eligible exercise program for Chinese PD patients, and to influence the clinical decisions of Chinese doctors.

Physical activity and risk of Parkinson’s disease: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
The hypothesis that physical activity lowers the risk of Parkinson’s disease is not supported, as the number of patients with Parkinson's disease in this study was not large, statistical power may have been limited and further large studies are needed to provide additional data.
Does vigorous exercise have a neuroprotective effect in Parkinson disease?
TLDR
Findings have several implications for PD clinicians, including that ongoing vigorous exercise and physical fitness should be highly encouraged and Levodopa and other forms of dopamine replenishment therapy should be utilized to achieve the maximum capability and motivation for patients to maintain fitness.
Qigong exercise for the symptoms of Parkinson's disease: A randomized, controlled pilot study
Irrespective of limited evidence, not only traditional physiotherapy, but also a wide array of complementary methods are applied by patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). We evaluated the immediate
Uric acid in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is possible that a high purine diet in patients with PD may slow progression of the disease and the manipulation of SU levels holds promise in the treatment of PD.
Cognitive Impairment and Dementia in Parkinson’s Disease: Clinical Features, Diagnosis, and Management
TLDR
This manuscript has synthesized relevant data in order to obtain a pragmatic and updated review regarding cognitive decline in PD, from milder stages to dementia.
Randomized Controlled Trial of Community-Based Dancing to Modify Disease Progression in Parkinson Disease
TLDR
Improvements in the Tango group were apparent off medication, suggesting that long-term participation in tango may modify progression of disability in PD.
Physical activity and the risk of Parkinson disease
TLDR
Either that higher levels of physical activity may lower the risk of Parkinson disease (PD) in men or that men predisposed to PD tend to avoid strenuous physical activity in their early adult years is suggested.
Restorative effect of endurance exercise on behavioral deficits in the chronic mouse model of Parkinson's disease with severe neurodegeneration
TLDR
This study indicates that in spite of the drastic loss of dopaminergic neurons and depletion of dopamine in the severe chronic MPD, endurance exercise training effectively reverses the Parkinson's like behavioral deficits related to regular movement, balance and gait performance.
