In May 2010, the Davis Phinney Foundation surveyed more than 200 people with Parkinson’s on the topic of exercise. We asked a panel of Parkinson’s experts to address the most frequently asked. questions.

The Panel of Experts

  • Matthew Ford,  PhD, PT, MA – University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Terry Ellis, PhD, PT, NCS – Boston University
  • Lee Dibble, PhD, PT, ATC – University of Utah
  • Mark Hirsch, PhD – Carolinas Rehabilitation, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
