Show Notes

Installment 2 of the ABC's of PD. 
Did you know that Parkinson's has a distinctive walk? It is called the Parkinsonian gait, and one of the potential characteristics of this is festination.  This episode explains what festination or festinating gait means.

Here is a great video demonstrating what festination looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5hrxKe2nP8

** disclaimer ** I have no affiliation with any Parkinson's specific exercise program I only mention PD Warrior as a point of reference.  

** I say posterior chain in the podcast but know that working your posterior chain will also strengthen the anterior muscles including your quadriceps, hip flexors, and abdominals.**
