IMG_3248.JPG

Dr Will Young will talk about using psychological strategies to overcome freezing of gait in Parkinson’s.

 

 

 

Dr Will Young is a Psychologist and Human Movement Scientist specialising in how anxiety influences the way we control our balance and walking.

 

Over the past few years Will has been working with Physiotherapists running projects looking at freezing of gait in Parkinson's.

 

In this session, Will will present some findings that might help us understand how anxiety influences (and is influenced by) freezing of gait, along with potential opportunities to overcome both of these. These ideas, along with Will's plans for future research, will be discussed in what we hope to be an informal and lively discussion!
