Pedaling 4 Parkinson's

A Wellness Recovery Program

Research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic showed a 35% reduction in Parkinson’s patient symptoms by the simple act of pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace - optimally 80-90 revolution per minute. Pedaling is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease and should not be touted as such,but there is compelling  evidence to show that it does make a real difference for many.
