Movement for Parkinson’s?

When one considers that Parkinson’s is a disease that affects motor skills, could it be possible to create positive changes with a proprioceptive approach?

Students at the School of Kinesiology at the University of Montreal concluded that dopaminergic medicine does not improve the coordination of movement or even the postural stability of patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Julie Messier, a professor at the University of Montreal, explains, “proprioception is a crucial source of sensory information for the control of posture and balance”.

Messier believes that it is urgent to develop new therapeutic modalities to improve the motor efficiency of people with Parkinson’s disease. She’s putting on a proprioceptive exercise program.

Knowing that proprioception is one of the basic sensory qualities of sensorimotor play, would not it be interesting to work and on proprioception, and on the tactile and vestibular simultaneously for optimal results?
