Kinesiologist to address Parkinson’s support group in Charlottetown on Jan. 7
The Parkinson’s Society has announced that Andrew Hume, kinesiologist, will be the guest speaker at the monthly support group meeting on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2 p.m., at Trinity United Church, Charlottetown (Richmond Street Entrance).
Hume, who has a kinesiology practice in Charlottetown working out of Reactive Health, graduated from Dalhousie University in 2004, subsequently completing a masters degree in biomed- ical sciences.
He has been practising in Charlottetown for the past five years.
Hume will discuss his role as a kinesiologist as it relates to helping people manage the challenges of Parkinson’s and other chronic medical conditions using adaptive postural activation, stretching and strengthening techniques.
The discussion will include an overview of the primary muscu- loskeletal dysfunctions associated with Parkinson’s and how to implement evidence-based research results regarding effective therapeutic exercise into one’s life in a way that is practical.
Many of the factors discussed will be applicable to people with other neurological diseases. All are welcome.
