Here in the Clinic I get several phone calls a week from patients as far afield as Mudgee and Canberra enquiring about our unique Parkinson’s Disease Mobility Program. In an ideal world we’d love all of our patients to complete a 1:1 program with our specialist physio team however we recognise that sometimes this is just not possible. Our philosophy here at ARC is to help as many people with Parkinson’s as we possibly can as we have seen the results of our intensive program which is based on new and exciting clinical evidence in neuroscience.
Recently I have treated a man from Mudgee who managed to stay at his daughter’s house in Sydney for 4 weeks. As well as a great holiday, he had the support network of people to help him with his exercises. He completed the program successfully and I have referred him to an exercise group in Mudgee so he can continue to be as active as he possibly can.
I am also due to follow up a lady who lives in Canberra. She managed to come to Sydney and stay at her daughter’s for a night which meant she could have two long sessions over two days to be taught her individual program. She has been back to see me once (managing to tie it in with a action packed weekend in Sydney!) for her program to be progressed and is due to come back and see me in another month. To help her stay on track I provided her with an exercise diary and she updates me on her progress over e mail.
For those lucky Sydneysiders then our intensive program works best, as we really make sure that your movement improvements take place during all of your everyday activities. However my last two remote clients have really proved to me that anything is possible and where there is a will there is a way! So whatever your, or a family member or friends situation is, we will really try and do the very best we can to provide you with a tailor made program which has been proven in the literature to be more affective then traditional exercises for people with Parkinson’s.
Whoever you are and wherever you live, take a trip to Sydney and we will do our very best to help you. Call us and explain your unique situation and we will help you sort out a plan of action! For more information please contact the office on 9906 7777.
