Learn about How a Bike Ride Led to Advancements in Parkinson’s Research
Did you know that not long ago it was common practice for doctors to “prescribe” rest for Parkinson’s because they considered it a safety risk and too much of an energy expenditure? Visit our blog to read about how riding RAGBRAI on a tandem bicycle with Cathy, a person with Parkinson’s, led Jay Alberts, PhD, Cleveland Clinic, to begin researching how cycling can help improve function in a person living with Parkinson’s.
Supported by the Davis Phinney Foundation, this initial research has since led to further breakthroughs, ultimately changing the way clinicians think about exercise and Parkinson’s. Learn more about these advancements here.
