PD COGNITIVE FITNESS PROGRAM

Our Parkinson's Cognitive Fitness Program (PCF) is a one-of-a-kind, 50-minute Parkinson's Disease (PD) specific skill training program that helps to maintain or restore motor skills that deteriorate and interfere with everyday movements. PCF has been wildly successful in helping people with PD in Hawaii.

WHY IT WORKS

A PCF program is a great way to maximize your ability level through a personal exercise program tailored to treat your individual PD challenges and symptoms. You'll receive the tools to complete each of the "11 Hurdles" that challenge the tasks of daily living, empowering you to live your life to the fullest.

 

The FTH Parkinson's Cognitive Fitness Program incorporates principles and exercises from the Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR!) program that has been tested and proven through research and clinical trials, along with guides and programs from the accredited National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

 

Recent advances in basic and clinical science research suggest exercise and learning approaches may protect, repair, and optimize function in persons with Parkinson's. Proactive rehabilitation paradigms are needed to deliver ongoing programming for life, starting at diagnosis and guided by the essential principles of learning and neuroplasticity. This research also suggests two types of exercise indispensable programs in triggering brain health and repair mechanisms – vigorous aerobic exercise and skill acquisition (targeted practice to learn a new skill or relearn an old skill). These "physiological tools" may even work best when performed simultaneously. 

 

FTH is excited to have you join our Ohana! Congratulations on taking the first step to take control proactively!
