The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of strength training, performed against a different resistance from body weight, in improving motor and nonmotor symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The following electronic databases were searched: PubMed, Physiotherapy Evidence Database, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Scopus, and Web of Science. The review was conducted and reported in accordance with the PRISMA statement. Thirteen high-quality… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Strength Training in Patients with Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Although patients who participated in the strength training groups demonstrated an overall improvement in Parkinsonian symptoms and function, there were mixed results with gait testing; therefore, strength testing to improve gait should be performed on a patient-specific basis. Expand
Physiotherapy in Parkinson’s Disease: A Meta-Analysis of Present Treatment Modalities
TLDR
This meta-analysis provides a comprehensive overview of the evidence for the effectiveness of different physiotherapy interventions in the management of PD, allowing clinicians and patients to make an evidence-based decision for specific treatment modalities. Expand
Aerobic and resistance exercises in Parkinson's disease: a narrative review
TLDR
It is concluded that although there are promising results suggesting the use of both modalities of exercises for the motor improvement in PD patients, the mechanism underlying these improvements are unknown and more studies with more defined designs and outcome measures are needed to further explore the impact of these twomodalities of exercise on PD. Expand
Exercise therapy in Parkinson’s disease – An overview of current interventional studies
TLDR
Overall, exercise therapy seems to be a safe and effective additional treatment option in Parkinson’s disease and precise exercise recommendations are developed based on the effective exercise intervention programs of the included studies. Expand
The Mechanism of Physical Activity-induced Amelioration of Parkinson’s Disease: A Narrative Review
TLDR
Given the etiologic evidence of the beneficial effects of physical activity on PD, albeit tentative, a concerted effort to elucidate the processes and outcomes ofPhysical activity on ameliorating symptoms of PD must be undertaken. Expand
Effects of resistance training on postural control in Parkinson's disease: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
This study was not able to detect changes in SP measurements following a three-month RT intervention, but both RT groups of PD patients showed improved motor performance, with positive balance effects in the freew group and better perceived quality of life in the gym group. Expand
Power vs strength training to improve muscular strength, power, balance and functional movement in individuals diagnosed with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Both ST and PT appear to be effective at reducing the neuromuscular deficits associated with PD; however, the use of these interventions for improving functional performance was not supported. Expand
Treating Patients Like Athletes: Sports Science Applied to Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
It is argued that a approach from the most relevant scientific and clinical fields is crucial to establish the use of clinical exercise in PD patients' routine care, and the benefits of applying sports science principles to potentiate the useof clinical exercise as a therapeutic intervention in PD management are highlighted. Expand
Progressive Resistance Training Improves Bradykinesia, Motor Symptoms and Functional Performance in Patients with Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
It is indicated that 9 weeks of PRT reduces bradykinesia and improves functional performance in patients with mild to moderate PD, reinforcing this mode of exercise as an important component of public health promotion programs for PD. Expand
The Importance of Rehabilitation Treatment in Patients with Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
Rehabilitation programs contain kinesiotherapeutic procedures for balance, posture, the range of motionsespecially rotation of the trunk, strength, elongation, as well as exercise for functionally reduced motion types. Expand

Progressive resistance training in Parkinson's disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
There is so far no evidence on the superiority of progressive resistance training compared with other physical training to support the use of this technique in rehabilitation of Parkinson's disease. Expand
Effort training in Parkinson's disease: a systematic review.
TLDR
There is evidence that aerobic and strength training improve physical habilities of patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease. Expand
A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Strength Training in Individuals With Multiple Sclerosis Or Parkinson Disease
TLDR
Strength training was found to significantly improve muscle strength in people with Parkinson disease and multiple sclerosis and several improvements in mobility, fatigue, functional capacity, and quality of life were found in individuals with multiple sclerosis after strength training. Expand
Parkinson's disease and intensive exercise therapy – a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
RT, ET and OITM all represent feasible, safe and beneficial adjunct rehabilitation therapies in PD and no studies find deterioration in any outcomes following exercise therapy. Expand
Aerobic Exercise for Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Aerobic exercise showed immediate beneficial effects in improving motor action, balance, and gait in patients with PD, but not in quality of life, and there was no valid evidence on follow-up effects of aerobic exercise for PD. Expand
Physiotherapy for Parkinson's disease: a comparison of techniques.
TLDR
This review shows that a wide range of physiotherapy interventions to treat PD have been tested and there is insufficient evidence to support or refute the effectiveness of one physiotherapy intervention over another in PD. Expand

TLDR
Exercise interventions specifically addressing components of balance dysfunction demonstrated the largest efficacy, with moderate to high effect sizes, across various types of exercise interventions. Expand

The Effects of Whole Body Vibration on Mobility and Balance in Parkinson Disease: a Systematic Review
TLDR
The majority of studies seem to suggest a favorable benefit following WBV for mobility and balance, but not when compared to other active intervention or placebo, and future research is needed to investigate the effects of different types of equipment and treatment dosage in individuals with Parkinson disease. Expand
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.
