New Infographic Available with Exercise Recommendations for Parkinson’s Disease

May 24, 2021
ACSM Parkinson's Exercise Recommendations

ACSM and the Parkinson’s Foundation developed a new infographic to provide safe and effective physical activity guidance for people with Parkinson’s and the certified exercise professionals working with them. The exercise recommendations build upon the science-based standards in the recently released 11th edition of ACSM’s Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription. The new infographic includes recommended frequency, intensity, time, type, volume and progression of exercises that are safe and effective for people with Parkinson’s across four domains: aerobic activity, strength training, balance/agility/multitasking and stretching.

We know exercising helps our health and can improve symptoms for chronic medical conditions, yet starting or keeping an exercise routine can be challenging. This infographic provides practical, evidence-based guidelines to help even more people benefit from an active lifestyle.
