Parkinson Disease:

Summit Rehabilitation Associates provides outpatient physical therapy services for people with Parkinson Disease (PD).  Our program addresses key issues associated with PD including activities of daily living management, stress reduction and effective strategies for movement problems found with PD.  This approach is based on an evaluation and sensorimotor exercise program developed at the Parkinson Center of Oregon at Oregon health & Sciences University.  This exercise program specifically addresses common constraints on mobility specific to PD including rigidity, bradykinesia, freezing, and poor sensory integration.  It is our goal to help the individual with PD to maintain or improve their mobility through exercise and to incorporate this program into a lifelong strategy to maximize mobility.
