What Is Brain Neuroplasticity Based Movement Classes?
It is common for people to ask what is neuroplasticity and how can it help with movement class? Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new connections throughout life. This process allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.
There is growing evidence that movement classes which are based on the principles of neuroplasticity can be helpful for people with a variety of movement disorders. These classes focus on helping the brain to rewire itself and form new neural connections. The goal is to help people regain lost movement or improve their current level of movement.
Neuroplasticity based movement classes have been shown to be helpful for people with conditions such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke. There is also some evidence that these classes may be helpful for people with Alzheimer’s disease and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
If you or someone you know has a movement disorder, consider talking to your doctor about neuroplasticity based movement classes. These classes can offer hope for regaining lost movement and improving quality of life.
