OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Physical Therapy students in Creighton University's School of Pharmacy and Health Professions will use their new laboratory space to host patients with Parkinson's disease to demonstrate new exercise and movement techniques.

On Thursday afternoon, students will learn about yoga, tai chi, Pilates, and other effective means of movement for people with Parkinson's, then follow up with Parkinson's patients.

These movement interventions have proven effective in helping with movement disorders associated with the disease.
