Parkinsonian Syndrome and Essential Tremor Movement Disorders

If you have a parkinsonian syndrome (PS) or essential tremor (ET) movement disorder, you may have trouble with certain forms of movement, from turning over in bed, to doing buttons, to swinging your arms as you walk. Controlling everyday actions can be a struggle.

A diagnosis of a PS or ET movement disorder doesn't mean that you can't be physically active; in fact, many researchers agree that regular exercise, such as walking, hiking, or dancing, is good for people with movement disorders. Moving can help rebuild strength and coordination. Talk to your doctor before you get started to figure out what type and how much exercise you can do.
