How Exercise can help benefit people living with a neurological condition
Exercise is a valuable tool in improving physical function and enhancing the well-being of those with neurological disorders. Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer’s are all examples of neurological disorders.
Symptoms of Neurological disorders can vary significantly for those living with these conditions. Symptoms can include
impeded gait cycles, loss of fine and gross motor control, strength and coordination loss, cognitive deficits, and mood changes.
Here are four ways exercise intervention could help:
1. Improved cognitive function
Regular exercise can enhance memory, boost mood, and improve brain health.
Exercise may help protect existing neurons, promote neuron growth, and slow the rate of progression in some neurological conditions.
3. Enhancing Motor Skills
Exercise can improve upper and lower body strength, coordination, and fine motor control. Improvements made in these ways can lead to increased independence and overall quality of life.
4. Providing a Support System
Exercise can be a powerful motivator; engaging in targeted group exercise intervention can assist with consistency and motivation. Participating in exercise groups with individuals with the same or similar conditions can be empowering and allow participants to have positive, shared, and supportive experiences.
The benefits of exercise intervention and physical activity can be profound. By engaging an Accredited Exercise Physiologist or Physiotherapist, targeted exercise intervention can improve physical function and provide a sense of control over your own health.
