PWR! Moves – Parkinson’s Wellness and Recovery
January 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$72
The JCC of Greater Pittsburgh has partnered with the Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania to offer PWR! Moves. Parkinson’s Wellness and Recovery Class.
PWR!Moves is a PD-specific skill training program to maintain or restore skills that deteriorate and interfere with everyday movements.
The BASIC4 | PWR!Moves are performed with large amplitude, high effort, and attention to action in multiple postures (floor, all 4’s, sitting, and standing). They specifically target “4” skills shown by research to interfere with mobility in people with PD (antigravity extention, weight shifting, axial mobility, and transitional movements).
Patricia Murphy is a licensed Physical Therapist who specializes in Parkinson’s patients and will be the instructor for the class.
If you have questions please call Marsha at 412-339-5415. The session begins January 13 – February 20, Mondays and Thursdays, at 11 am. The cost is $72 for the 12 sessions.
