A Message from Joel J. Digris, Leading Parkinson's Disease Physical Therapist About Dealing With Parkinson's Disease:

If you have Parkinson’s Disease, you may be feeling that your muscles are not listening.  You may be feeling that everything is harder in your life.  You may be like others who believe that there is nothing you can do to stop it from getting worse.  Your internal voice is saying that you’ve got time and you just need to see how things go.   

But now it seems that things are getting worse and you are worried. 

If this is happening to you, you're not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact helping people with the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease is a big part of our Home Program at Achieva Rehab.

Everyone like you wants to know the same things:


“Why Am I Struggling to Walk?”


“Why Are My Problems Happening More Often?  Nothing I’ve Tried Has Worked.”


Many people just like you hope that their Parkinson’s Disease symptoms won’t get worse and just wait and see how things go.  Six months later, your walking, strength, balance are all just a little worse.

Does That Sound Like You?

Some people have decided to do something about it so they see their family doctor who begins the process of mixing up cocktails of medications.  Sounds like a plan…surely that is what will work.

A lot of times, they end up going back to the doctor again and their problems have gotten worse.  This time, they're told by their doctor to see a specialist whose advice is to schedule further testing.  Exercise is rarely talked about despite the fact that studies show that it is vital for those with Parkinson’s Disease.

Has This Happened To You?

Where does Parkinson’s Disease come from? It's easy to get confused because you've been told so many different things by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to give you advice, but not all of the things you hear are reliable.

The nervous system very complex and the presentation of Parkinson’s Disease can be very confusing. Because of that many people end up accepting that it is progressive and the symptoms are just part of the process. 

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If any of these things have happened to you, we would love to help you by inviting you to schedule a FREE Phone Call with one of our expert physical therapists.

Click the link below to schedule a free telephone consultation. The phone call is complementary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after! Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what is the best next step.



“What Can I Do To Improve Quickly?”...


Well, here's 4 things you can do:


·​1. First, you need to decide to get help. So many people put off getting help right away.  “A stitch in time saves nine.”  Right?  So true.

·​3. Get real, Specialized Physical Therapy - Specialized Physical Therapy is proven to help people with Parkinson’s Disease.

·​4. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you improve your strength and balance is to do the right series of exercises - specifically created for you by our expert Physical Therapist to help you feel strong and steady and confident- and make sure you get back to doing the things you love to do!

Having experience with therapy in a traditional gym, I greatly prefer the Achieva Rehab in-home model because of the One-on-One relationship.  With Achieva, I get undivided attention as well as a much better understanding of my home exercise program, because it was taught to me exactly where I need to perform it.”


“Achieva was truly top notch! I have participated at other physical therapy facilities using fancy machines. Achieva is different. They use what you have in your home, so that you can function in your everyday life. You will not find anyone with more knowledge, compassion or perseverance. “


“I had vertigo for several years now and had been receiving therapy at another local PT office. Last year, however, the therapist was unable to restore my ability to function to a high enough degree that I felt comfortable doing daily routine activities. When I learned about  Achieva, I was anxious to have Joel become my therapist. .  I would continue to do the old and new exercises twice a day faithfully and had great results."


We have had the pleasure and privilege of having Achieva Rehabilitation come to our home for my husband. They are kind, knowledgeable, professional and caring…
