Treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD) has traditionally depended largely on pharmacological intervention. However, exercise is now also recognized as a significant and key component in the management of the condition. Despite the increasing prominence of exercise therapy in PD management, no self-report, Parkinson’s-specific measure of exercise existed, that was solely aimed at measuring these elements with adequate sensitivity. The PDQ-Exercise may help identify specific interventions and/or PD population groups for which exercise interventions will have the highest impact, levels of adherence, and compliance.
