A growing body of evidence exists advocating the value of physical activity and exercise for people with Parkinson's. Such is the importance of being active, participation in exercise is perceived to be of equal importance to medication in the long-term management of Parkinson's. Despite a substantial body of evidence, the optimal prescription of exercise or mode of delivery remains underdetermined. This article aims to discuss the current evidence and provide guidance of prescription of exercise during each of three commonly-referred to stages of Parkinson's: newly diagnosed, maintenance and complex.
