Sanford Bemidji Will Host Exercise Class For Patients With Parkinson’s Disease
Starting in September, Sanford Bemidji will be hosting free exercise classes designed for those with Parkinson’s disease. The classes will be held on the first Tuesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., September through May.
Throughout the class, several techniques designed for those with Parkinson’s will be offered. Anyone family or friends of those with Parkinson’s are welcome to attend the class as well.
Parkinson’s disease often gives patients trembling, stiffness, slow movements and loss of balance and coordination. The goal is to give techniques during the class to help patient’s become more independent.
There is no registration required and the monthly class is free at the Medical Center on the fourth floor. The first class will be Sept. 5. More information can be found at the Sanford Health website.
