Abstract

This is a critical appraisal of the article "Comparison of strength training, aerobic training, and additional physical therapy as supplementary treatments for Parkinson's disease"�. This study compared three exercise modalities and assessed their impact on patients with Parkinson's Disease. This appraisal will include an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of every section in the article. The analysis will be followed by a discussion on the significance of this study, and its relevance to a Physical therapists' treatment plan for a patient with Parkinson's disease. Through all of this, the reliability and clinical relevance of the interventions will be determined. It is crucial that Physical therapists educate themselves on the best interventions for patients using valid, reliable evidence.
