On Thursday, April 4, 2013, Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos, Co-Founder of Hands-On Care Physical Therapy, spoke to a group of people suffering from Parkinson's disease on how individualized and problem specific exercise programs can change the quality of their lives. The presentation took place at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and was sponsored by the Movement Disorders Department of the hospital. "Physical Therapy and appropriate exercise programs play a very important role in the quality of life of our patients," was noted by Dr. Barbara Changizzi, program director, in her recent interview to a local television station.
Dr. Kostopoulos emphasized that "the outcomes of exercise and physical therapy depend on their ability to positively affect the different components of the disorder. Scientific evidence supports that when exercise is not random but rather addresses the specific movement deficiencies of the individual, outcomes can be very impressive."
Several people affected by the disease shared their personal life experiences. April is Parkinson's Awareness Month and today, Mount Sinai Medical Center will be releasing the video of the event to the general public.
Hands-On Care Physical Therapy utilizes the individualized and problem specific exercise approach discussed by Dr Kostopoulos in this report.
