Balance

Parkinson’s has affected my balance to the point that the only exercise I can do is sitting down so I got me a mini bike. That way I can at least exercise my legs. The thing that bothers me the most is that Parkinson’s attacks the brain too. I find that my short term memory is affected. Those are just a few of the symptoms of this pernicious condition.

  1. I had to give up biking because of my balance. Then last year I bought what is called a Terra Trike. It's similar to a recumbent bike, but has three wheels and sits low to the ground. It has been wonderful. I am now able to go places just as I did when riding a bike. They are gaining in popularity. I have seen several around town.
