    Mirroring Other People's Moves with Parkinson's Disease
    www.outthinkingparkinsons.com In this video I want to talk about mirroring. Now, it’s well known that doing things like dance classes, boxing classes and tai chi is extremely beneficial for reducing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. What we think we have distilled from these...

    Just been sent this really lovely video by Jim Kennedy - Jim is making some really important case studies in regards to the power of music and rhythm for people with parkinson's, something we have been finding is extremely beneficial ourselves. Here Jim shows a ball exercise when combined with music. Find out more about these balls and movement recovery methods which use them here:

    I am finding repetitively squeezing my stress balls on elastic strings while doing my movement recovery exercises to be significantly assistive in unlocking movement, and I'm also learning more and more how to release them for purposes of "unfreezing". I demonstrate these ideas in this video - you can unequivocally see that I have significant bradykinesia while performing for you here. We have now created a whole series of ideas about using these "toys" for gentle exercises which can be done anywhere and any time... best done to music!

    In this video we start to see the benefits of Out-Thinking Parkinson's in action - literally [apologies for the poor sound quality, but it is the profound result in terms of movement which is what I want to share, so please just focus on motion].

    Here, you will see I am once more in a state of Bradykinesia: stiff, rigid limbs which are hard to move... or are they? Because what we have found time and again is that I can move quite freely even when in quite deep "off" periods, except when brain and body are overly tired. I can achieve movement by engaging different parts of my brain other than the damaged part, because there are many other healthy pathways which are also responsible for types of movement. More importantly, having proven it to myself and with daily practice of the types of exercises you see here, my confidence and ability to move is growing - fast! As are our ideas for new ways to iteratively improve these concepts.

    In the particular case study in the video, I'm using the part of the brain which is responsible for hand-eye co-ordination. The results go well beyond simply being able to move my limbs freely in some fashion, because the relief from the Parkinson's stiffness which I get while doing this is immense.

    Perhaps we might dismiss this as a curiosity or anomaly? I assure you it is so much more than this. Having progressed from the cotton wool to a small, bouncy ball today, I can say that for me the therapeutic value is very significant. But we've figured out if I tie something onto my finger, then I can use these ideas to reach for anything... by "web-slinging" spider-man fashion. I will demonstrate and document these latter ideas in my next video diary entry.

    Following on from yesterday's post on stress balls on elastic strings, I wanted to share this video I created, because it shows two applications of this simple, but powerful exercise idea. The first I call "hand ratching" which uses the balls and hand-eye co-ordination to help raise the arms sequentially - this has applications for reaching cupboards as well as providing relief from the "locked in" position of the "Parkinson's Stance" (hands claw, stooped shoulders and elbows bent). The second I call the "yo-yo catch" - this shows how recovering the balls can help to relearn, sharp, small motions of the arms. I do believe that practicing all sorts of movement exercises like this is not only helping me to relearn movement, but gives me new ways to think about moving which is allowing me to overcome various day-to-day problems I have with my Parkinson's
