This webinar covers the challenges of people with Parkinson’s maintaining their balance while on their feet. Balance is discussed relating to both common intervention options, including physical therapy and medication, and also what might affect balance—side effects of medications, Parkinson’s disease symptoms, and blood pressure.

We will share what we need to do to keep our balance, including:

  • Maintaining quiet standing
  • Walking without stumbling or tripping
  • Anticipating challenges to balance
  • Tolerating unexpected challenges to balance
