BACKGROUND Persons with Parkinson disease (PD) exhibit decreased muscular fitness including decreased muscle mass, muscle strength, bioenergetic capabilities and increased fatigability. OBJECTIVE This purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the therapeutic effects of resistance training with and without creatine supplementation in patients with mild to moderate PD. METHODS Twenty patients with idiopathic PD were randomized to receive creatine monohydrate supplementation plus… CONTINUE READING
