Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR!Moves) is a Parkinson’s-specific exercise program that works to improve neuroplasticity and slow the progression of Parkinson’s Disease. Focused on large movements, PWR!Moves targets four critical skills the disease attacks: antigravity extension, weight shifting, axial mobility, and transitional movements. Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery was founded in 2010 by Dr. Becky Farley.
Based on the principles established by LSVT Big and Loud, PWR!Moves encourages problem solving, fast processing and sequencing, challenging the participant with different techniques.
PWR!Moves focuses on four key skills:
PWR!Up: Posture and Alignment to counteract rigidity, reduce falls and make bigger steps
PWR!Rock: Weight Shifting improves turns, rolls and widens the base of support
PWR!Twist: Trunk Rotation utilizes rhythmic repetition to help reduce rigidity and improve transitional movement
PWR! Step: Transitions to help improve balance and movement from one location to another.
