About Ohana Pacific Rehabilitation Services:
We started Ohana Pacific in 2001 to provide physical therapy for Honolulu and Kailua residents. Our goal was, despite the challenging healthcare business environment, to be able to continue to treat our patients the old fashioned way - 1:1. We gradually built up our staff to include experienced therapists in a variety of specialties with the same passion to take care of the people of our Honolulu and Kailua communities. Our staff averages 18 years experience per therapist!
We are extremely excited to publish this book which is truly the first of its kind in many ways. Much of the material in this book and DVD is not available presently to a wide audience and it is also the first book/DVD on this topic written and directed by a physical therapist.
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a movement disorder that is unique. Due to this fact, the video/DVD format is the best way to illustrate movement techniques and exercise with actual persons with PD. The book format also offers useful additional information that is best presented in written form/text.
