Description

Pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace may change the life of someone living with Parkinson’s disease. Research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic found that patients can experience a 35% reduction in symptoms by riding an indoor, stationary bicycle for one hour three days a week. While cycling is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, there is compelling evidence to show that it does make a real difference for many who try it. Classes are designed to empower participants by optimizing their physical function, improving their gait, balance, speech, handwriting, and overall endurance, and helping to delay the progression of symptoms.

Pedaling for Parkinson’s is a FREE program being offered by Morris Hospital and the Morris Community YMCA. Classes meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1-2 p.m. at 109 E. Jefferson St., Morris. Participants must receive clearance to participate from their doctor. For more information or to register, call 815-513-8080.
