随着帕金森氏病的进展,某人可能会与他人进行的体育活动变得越来越困难,这可能会影响他们的社会生活。但是,几年前,我的丈夫迈克(Mike)和我发现了我们可以一起做的事情:皮划艇。

Like other桨运动,,,,皮划艇incorporates many of the练习recommended for those of us with Parkinson’s. It can improve strength and balance, and provide both cardio andamplitude training。Plus, we can do it with friends!

研究报告

Last summer, my search for either a tandem kayak or two single kayaks began and ended on the same day. Apparently, the COVID-19 pandemic had given everyone the same idea. Outdoor activities were popular, and kayaks were sold out everywhere.

沮丧的是,我放弃了零售搜索并追求在线市场。我发现了一个可充气的串联皮划艇,并开车将近一个小时来采购它。它仍然在盒子里,很方便打包。

方便的?是的。完美的?不,它与传统的皮划艇不同。座椅还不够坚固,无法正确划桨所需的杠杆作用。尽管这不是一个很棒的皮划艇,但仍然是一条很棒的筏。

The perfect Christmas gift

皮划艇在2020年底回来了假期,所以我订购了两个。圣诞节早晨到了,迈克去了寻宝。经过几次曲折,他在我父母的家中找到了它们。我们谈到了我们可能的皮划艇冒险。但是,尽管我进行了所有计划,但我尚未考虑如何运输这些可爱的浮动船只。

We purchased a roof rack, two J-bars, and a plethora of tie-down straps for our car. We were ready to go! However, we immediately realized that two kayaks and only two of us presented a challenge. Maneuvering the kayaks made me keenly aware of both my positional tremor and my limitedrange of motion。这需要努力,但我们设法将它们带到了汽车上。

The moment of truth

是时候测试驱动。侯的路线se from my parents’ house was less than 3 miles. My anxiety was off the charts, but we kept going. Feeling confident and reaching the speed limit, we approached the final turn into our neighborhood. Suddenly, the car was turning right, but the front of the kayak was going left.颤抖和笑同时,我们停了下来,修理了皮带,然后回家。

A few days later, we were successful. We finally got them out on the lake. It was beautiful and a great workout. It’s challenging to进出皮划艇gracefully, though it’s a good balance exercise. I recommend watching atutorial video探索不同的选项。

如果您想包括朋友或结交新的公司,许多公司都会提供租赁皮划艇和当地团体划桨旅行。

如果您有帕金森氏症,你怎么样保持社交生活?您可以与朋友一起做什么类型的活动?您尝试过桨运动吗?请务必访问帕金森岛的《今日新闻》论坛,并分享您的故事。

我的女儿未婚妻告诉我,他要去他听说有一些皮划艇出售的房子,并告诉我他打算买什么。然后他告诉我,他们还有另一个要出售的东西,但价格比他抓住的价格高一点,还有一些更大的皮划艇。.我问他是否可以加入他。我得到了他在他抓住他所追求的时告诉我的另一个人。
We been using them to go out and go fishing with. I get a good work out going up and down the creek and into the the lake, even at a private pond.. I get a work out from the paddling and from the fishing.. I've just got to work on my balance on trying to get in and out of them... I generally have him to help me get back out of the kayak, but the other day he was still down stream with a friend that went along with us. Well, I didn't have that balance right in standing up there on the bank and over I fell... It was cool, wet and muddy... lol... I've enjoyed it though. We generally keep the decent fish, and if we don't feel up to cleaning them, we give them to others that can use the food..
我将不得不去检查您给出的链接:“从皮划艇进出 - 视频”。
Thank you its good to know that's to be of good exercise for me..
Thanks

嗨,洛里,

How long was it before you lost some of your balance and mobility. I ws diagnosed 2.5 years ago and my probems are more centered around sleep and anxiety. I love rock steady boxing and still live a very active life.

安德里亚(Andrea) - 我的平衡和流动性仍然不错,但我每天都在保持平衡。我也有睡眠和焦虑问题。...锻炼也有助于这两者。继续锻炼并继续前进!

I love kayaking! A coworker took me out shortly after I was diagnosed and I fell in love. After a good paddle, I feel amazing. Unfortunately, this year we weren't able to get out as much as I'd like but hopefully next year will be better. I highly recommend it and have found it improves me physically and spiritually.
感谢你的这篇文章!
