This book is written for people with Parkinson's, especially in the early stages who are looking for an exercise regime that will keep them strong, flexible and as mobile as possible. This book is also an indispensible guide for Pilates Instructors who may not have experience working with Parkinson's clients. Physiotherapists may also find this book a useful aid to their practice. Up to date medical information is provided, written in such a way that is easy to understand for someone from a non-medical background. In the early stages of Parkinson's, formal physiotherapy input may not be indicated however it is important that the client makes sure they incorporate an appropriate exercise regime into their routine.
