Description

An exercise class for people with Parkinson’s disease is being run at the Satellite Centre in Greenfield.

Course leader Dr Sarah Prenton, whose mum has Parkinson’s, has more than 20 years’ experience as a specialist in neurological Physiotherapy. 

“The number of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the UK is about 145,000, that’s around 1 adult in every 350,”

“Sessions will focus on strength, co-ordination and movement, entailing circuit-based exercise that is designed to be both physically and mentally vigorous,” 

“For example, the circuit may include boxing, weights, memory and balancing tasks, tailored to each individual.

“It is designed to be different from what is already offered locally as well as providing an opportunity to anyone who might have other commitments during the day, when many other classes run.”
