Witham Health Services is proud to announce a new program that you can’t find anywhere else in Central Indiana. Pedaling for Parkinson’s is a stationary cycling program based on the research performed by Dr. Jay Albert at the Cleveland Clinic. The Pedaling for Parkinson’s program is a form of “Forced Exercise” on an indoor bicycle. Participants have shown improvement in their Parkinson’s related symptoms by as much as 35%. The mission of this program is to help improve the quality of life of people living with Parkinson’s disease. In addition, Pedaling for Parkinson’s provides information for patients and caregivers, and the general public about the benefits of maintaining an active lifestyle after a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
“We are so grateful to the Community Foundation of Boone County for funding this incredible new program. We have seen the impact our Rock Steady Boxing program has had on our Parkinson’s patients and we cannot wait to serve them in a new and exciting way!” said Trina Rose, Wellness Coordinator at Witham Health Services. Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. in our South Pavilion Wellness Center. The first class kicks off on Tuesday, October 6th at 9:00 a.m. For more information or to register for the class please call 765-485-8126.
