Nordic Walking and its Effect on Parkinson's - The Story of Bill Trewin

Posted by York Nordic on December 22, 2016 at 9:03am 0 Comments

Thanks to some of my recent clinic participants I have become intrigued by how Nordic Walking would measurably benefit those who struggle with balance and stability. Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis are both diseases which come to mind. In some of my recent research I came across Bill Trewin who tells his story better than I could... so here it is.
