Cognitive movement strategies to improve transfers: There are many activities that the average person performs automatically that actually involve the execution of long and complex movement sequences, such as getting up from a chair. When a person with PD tries to get up from a chair without concentrating on the task, he or she often falls backwards. One strategy is to cut the long sequence of movements into small components: for example, hands on the chair arms, shift left, shift right, one, two, three and up.
Posture, balance and upper limb function: Cueing and cognitive movement strategies are creatively used by Experienced Physiotherapist in Bannerghatta Road to design exercises to improve posture, such as straightening the back and maintaining posture by looking at a target at eye level, or training functional arm movements, such as drinking from a cup by dividing the complex sequence into different steps and practicing each step separately. Balance training could include stepping on the spot while lifting the knees up high, following the sound of a metronome.
