PWR!Moves is a cutting edge Parkinson disease-specific neuroplasticity-principled exercise program that holds promise to slow disease progression, improve symptoms, restore function, and increase longevity and quality of life. PWR!Moves was founded by Dr. Becky Farley, a physical therapist, neuroscientist, and Parkinson exercise specialist.
PWR!Moves are the building blocks of FUNction. Participants with focus on the BASIC4 | PWR!Moves of UP | ROCK | TWIST | STEP. These exercises are designed to teach people how to use HIGH EFFORT, large movements and complete muscle ACTIVATION.
The BASIC4 | PWR!Moves are performed with large amplitude, high effort, and attention to action in multiple postures (floor, all 4’s, sitting, and standing). They specifically target “4” skills shown by research to interfere with mobility in people living with Parkinsons (antigravity extention, weight shifting, axial mobility, and transitional movements).
All clients are required to book an individual one-hour assessment in order to determine suitability for the program. The initial assessment will screen for safety, physical limitations, and health risks. Clients will receive personal instruction to the specific PWR!Moves that will allow them to maximize results. This session will also provide personalized strategies to pursue during the group classes and at home.
