MEET THE EXPERT SERIES: Dr. Nate Coomer, “Feeling a little off-center lately?”

February 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation and Dr. Nate Coomer, Physical Therapist, Owner and Founder of the Parkinson’s Fitness Project for a discussion on posture and PD.

Feeling a little off center? A stooping, bending or leaning posture can be common in Parkinson’s Disease. In this talk we will discuss the reasons why posture can be affected by PD, the most common postural changes and how physical therapists can help treat these issues. There will also be a demonstration of some simple exercises attendees can use at home to keep you on the straight and narrow!
