Re: the Feb. 12 article "Quick primer on Parkinson's disease, its symptoms, causes, complications."
The article from the Mayo Clinic did not include information about treatment for the disease. In addition to medication, the Mayo Clinic website notes the importance of "ongoing aerobic exercise" in a treatment plan. Tucson is home to Parkinson's Wellness Recovery, a nonprofit, which includes a one-of-a-kind community fitness center specializing in proactive research-based Parkinson-specific rehab, fitness and wellness programming. Any person with Parkinson's here in the Tucson area should be aware of this outstanding resource.
