According to researchers, forced exercises like bicycling could help central nervous system, triggering the release of certain chemicals that improves motor skills in Parkinson’s patients.
They conducted a brain scan study, comparing the brain of a Parkinson’s patient on medication and the one who has exercised.
It was found that exercising is the best alternative to fight against the disease. Current Parkinson’s medications generally control only motor functions for a few hours, much less days. But if you really need an effective solution for the problem, exercising is the best alternative.
However, Scientists said it would take more studies to conclude if exercise actually slowed down the progression of Parkinson’s and whether it could complement or even replace medication.
