 April is Parkinson’s Disease awareness month

Intensive exercise can alter the way the brain works and promote recovery. Research proves intensive exercise can help people with Parkinson’s Disease walk and move more normally, reconditioning the underlying brain circuits, and influencing neuroplasticity at the molecular level. This helps the brain  function normally and to promote recovery of the ability to move.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out more about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
