Parkinson's Group Class

A group program for those with reduced mobility and stability aimed at improving strength, balance and functional abilities.

The Positive Impact of NeuroGym®’s Parkinson's Group Class

Being active is essential to maintaining physical and mental well-being which can be more difficult with mobility limitations like those associated with Parkinson’s. Canadian guideline for Parkinson disease (2019) recommends “starting exercise as soon as the diagnosis is established.” That exercise improves the ability to perform activities of daily living as well as how people with Parkinson’s disease feel. Our unique equipment and active approach allows participants to safely practice the skills necessary to improve functional mobility, strength and fine-motor control. You can read the full Canadian guideline Here.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I was in a bad state and was discharged home in a coma. Then I began with Avi and the growth was exponential. The rest is history, I was here for twelve years. It’s a great place, I can’t express my thanks enough.
My son was getting married and I really wanted to walk up the aisle with my husband. NeuroGym helped me do it.
This place is amazing, it gives people hope and opens doors in so many ways.
I have Parkinson’s Disease. Over the months I have improved in both strength and balance while my disease has not noticeably deteriorated at all. I feel fortunate to have found NeuroGym. The outlook for my disease without it could have been grim indeed.
Our son had a stroke when he was 14 years old. He has been involved in five to seven day a week therapy. The recovery has been amazing. It’s been beyond expectations and dramatic.
I have MS, I’ve had MS since I was 18. My doctors had said “no, it’s chronic progressive”. But NeuroGym has given me the opportunity to build strength. It’s made a huge difference.
When I first came here I had almost no strength in my legs and I could barely move my right leg. You can imagine going from not being able to move at all, to standing, to being able to walk! This is the way for me to stay in shape and stay healthy.
I found NeuroGym after my mum had a massive stroke in February 2020. After 4 months of virtual therapy with NeuroGym, my mum has progressed from someone who I thought would never get out of bed to a one person assist.
