Clinical Research on Rehabilitation for PD It is generally accepted that physical activity and exercise are good for patients with PD. This assumption is supported by experimental data in the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) rat model of PD, which has demonstrated that preinjury forced limb use is able to reduce behavioral and neurochemical deficits, possibly because of the neuroprotective effects of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) [4].
