I loved listening to this segment on NPR about the positive effects regular exercise can have on brain health. NYU Neuroscientist Dr. Wendy Suzuki discusses how regular exercise can boost attention span, memory and mood, as well as stimulate new brain cell growth in the part of our brain that promotes memory.
Dr. Suzuki suggests that it's never too late to begin a regular exercise routine and reap the benefits. If you or a loved one are experiencing the early stages of dementia or Alzheimer's disease, decreased endurance or strength, and low energy levels, a home care physical therapist can evaluate and prescribe a safe, personally tailored exercise program.
