Sprenger Therapy helps fight Parkinson’s with Delay the Disease
Sprenger Health Care Systems is helping empower those affected by Parkinson’s disease (PD) through OhioHealth’s Delay the Disease program.
Delay the Disease is a 12-week exercise program developed by OhioHealth to optimize the physical functioning of those with PD.
Studies have shown that regular exercise can fight the progression of Parkinson’s disease and help individuals manage the symptoms.
This exercise program has been designed specifically to target everyday challenges experienced by people with Parkinson’s disease. Delay the Disease can help participants improve balance, soothe tremors, improve posture and enhance vocals.
“The participants have reported improvements in strength, balance and mood. In addition to improving functional mobility, they have gained confidence and increased their quality of life” said Laura Toetz, director of rehabilitation at Amherst Manor Retirement Community.
