About PINGPONG PARKINSON
The primary goal of the PPP Ping Pong Foundation is to advance an organization, whose purpose it is to halt the progression of Parkinson's Disease, by using ping pong or table tennis as a form of physical therapy. They base our brain training model on the theory of neuroplasticity. Physical exercise must challenge the brain to tone the parts of the brain responsible for cognition. There is very interesting evidence that in treating Parkinson's disease, one should: (1) Lower your risk with medication; (2) Keep yourself loose and calm with regular ping pong; and (3) Regularly use your exercise equipment.
