On PRI and Parkinson’s Disease…

I was wondering if you guys have any information or suggestions on PRI treatment for patients with Parkinson’s?

The main focus from a PRI approach is to focus on neutrality.  You are not going to be able to do “typical” PRI work with this patient but you can work on achieving neutrality.  Once they are neutral, you would also work on reciprocal function during gait.  Dynamic reciprocal activity would be our major focus when working with someone with Parkinson’s Disease.
