People living with Parkinson’s disease are told by doctors that they'll gradually lose control of their muscles.

But there are some fitness experts that are telling some of those patients to stand up and take control of their health through excercise. 

Have you tried to excercise to regain muscle control? Do you think this can help? 

Don't be afraid to share your thoughts and experiences!
