RPG Kinesiotherapy, LLC

Parkinson’s Disease
Accepting referrals for clients with a Hoehn & Yahr classification of 1 or 2

The training will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday.  Each participant may choose to attend as often as he/she wishes, but a frequency of twice per week is recommended.  Each session will last approximately 1 hour.  Classes will be kept small to maximize personal attention.

The pace of participation during each class is determined by the participant.  The client should inform the instructor of any ill effects encountered during the class and feel free to take time out as needed. 

The client must provide a referral from a licensed practitioner with privileges to make referrals (physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, etc.).  Dr. Gustafson is currently accepting clients with a Hoehn & Yahr classification of 1 or 2.

Prior to beginning training each participant must complete a series of pre-participation baseline tests which will be repeated every 4-6 months in order to measure progress.

Each client will need to have his/her own set of boxing gloves with a velcro closure (not lace-up gloves) and gel-wrap gloves for the training.  The client should not purchase these items until after the initial meeting with Dr. Gustafson.


Dementia


Beginning on November 1, 2018 we will offer our boxing program to clients with early stage dementia.  Each client must be referred by a physician, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner with referring privileges.  The referring professional must indicate the the client has been diagnosed with dementia in stages 1, 2 or 3 of the Global Deterioration Scale for Assessment of Primary Degenerative Dementia.  Each client will need to have his/her own set of boxing gloves with a velcro closure (not lace-up gloves) and gel-wrap gloves for the training.  The client should not purchase these items until after the initial meeting with Dr. Gustafson.


Rates

Ten sessions may be purchased for $100.  The client also has the option of paying by the class for $15 per class.

Pre-participation test battery = $25 (non-refundable).  The cost of the test battery may be applied toward the purchase of a ten-session package.  Follow-up testing is available at the beginning of any ten-session package (follow-up testing is recommended at 4-6 month intervals).
