Hand & Dexterity Exercise Series
Join physiotherapist, Shelly Yu, for an exercise series focused on hand and dexterity challenges associated with Parkinson's disease. After the success of our Hand & Dexterity Exercise Series this summer, Parkinson Society BC is proud to bring back this exercise program for a second round! Those who joined us in July are welcome and encouraged to participate again — the benefits of exercise are best revealed when done as an ongoing practice.
Exercises in this series will target upper extremity movement, hand dexterity, grip strength, hand-finger coordination, and overall arm function. As this is a hand and dexterity class, all exercises will be done in a seated position — ideally in a chair without armrests.
Equipment needed for this exercise series includes:
- A small tea or kitchen towel
- A small cushion/pillow
- A small elastic band or hair tie
We welcome all individuals with Parkinson's to this webinar as well as their spouses and/or carepartners, as they may benefit from learning more about the disease to assist in supporting their loved one.
Registration for this exercise series will close on Tuesday, January 12.
||Thursdays, January 14, 21, 28, February 4, 11, & 18
||11:00am – 12:00pm
