Abstract

Introduction: Parkinson's disease is one of the leading neurogenic causes of falls and gait impairments in the elderly. Maintaining daily living activities becomes harder as the disease progresses. Falls frequently occur because of physical and cognitive disabilities. In the current study, our aims were to assess the effects of exercise and the occurrence of falls in patients with Parkinson's disease.
