What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a brain disorder that causes muscle rigidity, slowness of movement, tremors and shaking, loss of balance and speech among others symptoms.
“ Everything slows down and stiffens up with PD, everything that you do. “ Dr. Elana Clar, Neurologist, New Jersey Brain & Spine.

What is the health benefit of ping pong for Parkinson’s Disease?
“ Ping pong provides physical exercise, which is one of the most effective ways to improve parkinson’s disease symptoms. It is also a brain sport and helps to relieve cognitive symptoms - you have to think on your feet, use visual attention and develop quick reaction time. “ Dr. Elizabeth Kera, Neuropsychologist & Director of Hackensack University Medical Center, Psychology Division.
