A small pilot study found that people with early Parkinson’s disease who walked on a treadmill 3 times per week for 8 weeks increased dopamine receptors in certain brain regions.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that leads to the loss of dopamine-producing neurons which leads to loss of motor control.

There have been a number of studies published that have shown that people with Parkinson’s disease who exercise can improve their balance and gait compared to those that do not.

Exercise is so important for brain health!
