In a nutshell: People with Parkinson’s experience frequent and recurrent falls, which may have devastating consequences. There is therefore an urgent need to identify cost-effective interventions to reduce these falls. This evaluation compared an exercise intervention with usual care for Parkinson’s sufferers. It found that while there was no difference in total healthcare or social care cost, analyses indicate a larger study would probably find the exercise intervention more cost effective than usual care.
