      Have you tried aquatic therapy? Because it takes place in water, which reduces the stress and pressure on the body, aquatic therapy is commonly recommended for exercise and rehabilitation. Studies have shown it to be particularly effective for people with early to mid-stage Parkinson’s disease, not to mention that spending time in the water can be refreshing, relaxing, and healing for both the body and the soul.

      I’m currently going through aquatic therapy for SI Joint, low back and hip pain. My neurologist said it’s also good for PD. I really enjoy it. The resistance from the water allows me to get a better workout. I have some balance problems, so I use a pool noodle to walk across the pool (part of the warm up).

        Patricia, do you enjoy it more than other activities that you’ve tried?

        Thanks for sharing, Patricia. I have issues with SI joint pain, too. Are yours related to PD? Have you found the aquatic therapy to be helpful?
