Abstract

Introduction: Parkinson disease has symptoms that can be reduced by integrative therapy.

 

Objective: To verify the integrative therapy effects with motion mobility, balance, and agility in people with Parkinson disease.

 

Methods: A systematic review with meta-analysis was performed for randomized, nonrandomized, and semirandomized controlled trials.

 

Results: A total of 122 studies were found, with 9 being selected, for people with Parkinson disease. The intervention varied from 2 weeks to 12 months, with dance and Tai Chi.

 

Conclusion: The dance and Tai Chi brought no significant differences in balance and agility. Tai Chi improved mobility compared with other therapies.
