The Chase Family Movement Disorders Center provides cutting-edge research, pharmacologic management, surgical options and psychosocial support. The program also emphasizes the important role of exercise, socialization and a healthy lifestyle in the maintenance of every patient’s overall well-being.

Free fitness classes for the mind and body are offered to help improve and stabilize the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. Tai Chi, yoga and boxing are ongoing at the Center’s original Vernon location and will be a part of the new Cheshire and Mystic locations, as well.
