New partnership for walking sessions

23 June 2020

New partnership with Neuromotrix

In order to bring even more diversity to the activities offered, Parkinson Québec has just validated a new partnership with Neuromotrix.
We offer to people with Parkinson’s disease the opportunity to participate in 4 sessions of a workshop “Walking efficiently with your poles”.


4 walking sessions with poles

This workshop consists of four sessions that will allow you to become familiar with walking with poles (Nordic walking) so that you can get the most out of this activity!

The use of poles during the walk ensures better posture, helps maintain balance and forces the upper and lower body to participate in the movements. Learn the technique, practice Nordic Walking and discover a multitude of exercises that are done with poles with a NeuroMotrix kinesiologist.


All the advantages of Nordic walking:

  • improves respiratory capacity
  • strengthens the immune system
  • improves mood
  • tones thighs and buttocks
  • strengthens shoulders, arms and pectorals
  • improves posture
  • strengthens the back and abdominals

No experience required, only the ability to walk a hundred meters without technical assistance.

Bring your poles, if you have any, or NeuroMotrix will lend you some!
