    2. I'd suggest looking for a Physical Therapist (PT) who specializes in Parkinson's. You can google search for Parkinson's Physical Therapists in your area, but look for certifications after their name like:
      LSVT Big Certified
      Board Certified NCS (Neurologic Clinical Specialist)


      You can also ask your neurologist for a recommendation. I hope that helps!
