Pills on PD Rehabilitation – Parkinson and Exercise

Remote training

Wednesday, 5:00 PM -- 6:00 PM
April 28, 2021


Movement disorders encompass a variety of conditions affecting the nervous system at multiple levels. The pathological processes underlying movement disorders alter normal neural function and could lead to aberrant neuroplastic changes and to clinical phenomenology that are not expressed merely through motor symptoms.


Given this complexity, the responsiveness to pharmacological and surgical therapies is often disappointing. Growing evidence supports the efficacy of neurorehabilitation for the treatment of movement disorders. Specific forms of training involving both goal-based practice and aerobic training could drive and modulate neuroplasticity to restore the circuitries dysfunctions and to achieve behavioral gains.


In this perspective we propose a cycle of monthly webinars, “PILLS on PD Rehabilitation”: an overview on rehabilitation of Parkinson’s disease and other Movement Disorders with suggestions on specific, tailored rehabilitation strategies that should be adopted for the management of different movement disorders.

The objective of this webinar series is to bring the PD biomedical community together to advance knowledge in PD neurorehabilitation.  Mid-career, Senior career stage and early career professionals, generally doctoral level, post-doc, fellow and up to assistant professor, will present ongoing and recently completed research and scholarship.


This cycle of webinars could be added to the substantial resources with which the Fresco Parkinson Institute provides for the multidisciplinary team of professionals towards an integrated and comprehensive model of care with a tailored approach for people living with Parkinson’s disease and other Movement Disorders.
