Yes, exercise improves quality of life.
Exercise cannot cure Parkinson’s disease but there is evidence that it may protect against Parkinson’s disease developing,  and that it can help with some of the movement problems associated with the disease, such as balance and muscle strength.  As well as improving an individual’s physical well-being, exercise also improves an individual’s mental state, helping to alleviate stress and feelings of depression. There is evidence that walking or running is beneficial  and very recently a study found that Tai Chi can help by improving strength and balance, preventing falls and improving mobility.
