About PWR!

Innovating the treatment of Parkinson’s through research-based exercise

Parkinson Wellness Recovery | PWR! is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) founded public charity and contributions are tax-deductible. PWR! got started when Dr. Farley, after years of research saw compelling data that proved that exercise has serious benefits for people living with Parkinson’s. But research does no good if it stays inside the lab. PWR! advocates changing our present treatment paradigms and incorporating the translation of research-based neuroplasticity concepts into proactive programming with daily access throughout the ENTIRE continuum of care which starts at diagnosis with rehab and then doesn’t stop, but is actually a cycle of rehab to community and back. PWR! is about changing the status quo to offer the latest cutting edge research exercise programming at diagnosis for life.
Dr. Farley teamed up with Sally Michaels, PT, CCM and officially debuted the mission and activities related to the PWR! project at the World Parkinson Congress in Glasgow, Scotland in 2010. By 2012, with the goal to increase the availability of PD-specific research-based exercise that adhere to Exercise4BrainChange® principles of practice Dr. Farley and Sally Michaels, PT, CCM opened the PWR!Gym®, a NeuroFitness Center of Excellence in Tucson, AZ.
