Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder affecting the physical, psychological, social, and functional status of individuals. Exercise programs may be an effective strategy to delay or reverse functional decline for people with PD and a large body of empirical evidence has emerged in recent years. The objective is to systematically review randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reporting on the effectiveness of exercise interventions on outcomes (physical, psychological or social… Expand
Effects of resistance training for people with Parkinson's disease: a systematic review.
TLDR
Resistance training was shown to have a positive effect in both muscle strength outcomes as well as functional outcomes related to mobility in this population of Parkinson's disease. Expand
A Systematic Review on Various Modes of Exercise on People with Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
Exercise appears to provide benefits for physical functioning and health-related quality of life of people with PD. 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
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. Expand
Physiotherapy intervention in Parkinson’s disease: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials found no evidence that the treatment effect differed across the interventions for any outcomes assessed, apart from motor subscores on the unified Parkinson’s disease rating scale. Expand
Comments on: “Nordic Walking for the Management of People With Parkinson Disease: A Systematic Review”

TLDR
A systematic review to evaluate the effects of Nordic walking on motor and nonmotor symptoms, functional performance, and quality of life in people with Parkinson disease found that the inclusion criteria are ambiguous and do not sufficiently follow the PICO format. Expand
Effects of Physical-Exercise-Based Rehabilitation Programs on the Quality of Life of Patients With Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials.
TLDR
Physical-exercise-based rehabilitation programs realized 2-4 times a week, 60 min each session, for 6-12 weeks, and follow-up of 3 months promotes significant positive effects on quality of life in Parkinson's disease patients at mild to moderate stages and disease duration around 6 years. Expand
Effect of resistance exercise on body structure & function, activity and participation in individuals with Parkinson's Disease: A systematic review.
TLDR
Although the level of evidence was low to very low, RE was shown to promote improvements in body structure & function (upper limb muscle strength, cardiovascular function and postural balance) and activity (gait), and RE did not significantly improve participation (quality of life). Expand
Effects of dance therapy on cognitive and mood symptoms in people with Parkinson's disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Dance therapy is beneficial in improving executive function for adults with PD, however, there are no positive effects were founded on global cognitive function, depression and apathy for PD. Expand

TLDR
Aquatic therapy had positive outcomes for gait, balance and mobility that were comparable to land-based physiotherapy in the early stages of PD. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that Parkinson patients benefit from PT added to their standard medication is supported, in terms of neurologic signs, activities of daily living, and walking ability. Expand

Effects of external rhythmical cueing on gait in patients with Parkinson's disease: a systematic review
TLDR
Only one high-quality study is suggested, suggesting that the walking speed of patients with Parkinson's disease can be positively influenced, however, it is unclear whether positive effects identified in the laboratory can be generalized to improved activities of daily living (ADLs) and reduced frequency of falls in the community.

Efficacy of a physical therapy program in patients with Parkinson's disease: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
People with PD derive benefits in the short term from PT group treatment, in addition to their MT, for quality of life related to mobility, CWS, and ADLs; long-term benefits were found in C WS, UPDRS ADL, and total scores but varied between groups. 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

TLDR
BWSTT has a lasting effect specifically on short-step gait in PD and is of long-term benefit for patients with Parkinson's disease. Expand
