  • Increase his movement velocity for an extended period of time while moving on a continuous cycle.
  • Increase reaction time in affected hand during grasping
  • Increase stride length and gait symmetry
  • Increase a bigger and more accurate moving base of support

  • Redirect attention to antagonistic muscles to better facilitate range of motion on the affected side. Connecting boxing biomechanics to reaching.
  • Motorvation Methodologies to retrain reaching and grasping while moving on a cycle

  • He can raise his arm overhead while lifting weight up to 35 pounds

Video documentation

Balancing is much easier to accomplish when theres education in exercise. Understanding how weight transfers, how the pelvis needs to be positioned for specific weight transfer, where to focus the attention to drive effective movement.
Parkinson's disease, frozen shoulder, and an active tremor. Increasing reaching speed by connecting attention to the non affected side.
This was after learning tools to overcome loss of effort combined with some PT addressing the rigidity. No Levodopa yet...

I've been working with Motorvation since 2019. When I started I was walking hunched over and couldn't get out of a chair by myself. With Motorvation's training regimen, I'm now walking 3-4 miles per day, jumping rope, throwing a football, and golfing. Motorvation has given me back my inner athlete.
