Lockette, K. (2008)
MOVE IT is a resource guidebook specifically for people with Parkinson's disease. It focuses on movement and exercise to help people with PD "move more effectively and to stave off further physical decline." Kevin Lockette, a physical therapist who has had over 19 years of experience, is the author. He believes that exercise, along with medication, can counteract the negative effects of Parkinson's disease. Some of the book's chapters cover topics such as: techniques and tricks for improved mobility, such as bed mobility, transfers and walking; complete exercise programs specific for Parkinson's disease; and anti-freezing techniques that really work.
The book is also available on DVD, which includes demonstrations of movement techniques, and three levels of exercise programs, two of which are shown here. The book also includes pictures of exercise demonstrations.
