We are extremely excited to publish this book which is truly the first of its kind in many ways. Much of the material in this book and DVD is not available presently to a wide audience and it is also the first book/DVD on this topic written and directed by a physical therapist.
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a movement disorder that is unique. Due to this fact, the video/DVD format is the best way to illustrate movement techniques and exercise with actual persons with PD. The book format also offers useful additional information that is best presented in written form/text.
