Pedaling for Parkinson’s

by | Jun 28, 2023

Ohman Family Living is proud to introduce a new program in collaboration with founder Dr. Jay Alberts at the Cleveland Clinic and HealthPRO Heritage.

The Mission

Pedaling for Parkinson’s (PFP) provides an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to make positive improvements in their quality of life. On average, PFP participants see a 35% reduction in global motor symptoms measured on the clinical evaluation assessment, the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS-Part III Motor Exam). Though PFP is not a cure, it does provide PD patients with an alternative to relieve symptoms and improved fitness.

What is it?

Pedaling for Parkinson’s is an indoor stationary cycling program designed specifically for people living with Parkinson’s diseases (PD). Developed by the non-profit organization of the same name, Pedaling for Parkinson’s (PFP) is focused on improving the quality of life for people with PD. Because of its simplicity, the program allows PD patients with varying symptoms to participate, experience the benefits of forced exercise cycling, and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
