Parkinson’s Disease Freezing Gait Tips

Posted on May 14, 2014. Filed under: Balance-Based Torso-Weighting, Parkinson's Disease, Research | Tags: , |

Here are some helpful hints from the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation regarding freezing of gait. I have also found when working with patients during physical therapy that when I see a patient starting to freeze; I say, “stop, take a step.” If you see you partner with PD starting to freeze give it a try. It works most of the time. Stop, take a step. We have found patients with PD do better using BalanceWear too. In a double blinded randomized control trial we demonstrated same session improvement in walking speed with Balance-Based Torso-Weighting.
