Help us fund free physical therapy for newly diagnosed person’s with Parkinson’s disease!
I had nothing to lose. There were still spots with Dr. Johnson open under the grant, so I signed up for physical therapy. It was perhaps the best decision of my life.

I cannot be strong enough in my recommendation to seek out Dr. Johnson, or physical therapy. The education in exercise technique is immensely valuable. The gift of a transformed mindset regarding real engagement in that exercise is priceless.
“Val is the best! After my cerebellar stroke, my brain lost its way to keep me balanced. I continue to improve with her approach. She helped my brain coordinate with my ears and the rest of my body so that I am much closer to a normal life…. walking without a cane and driving!”
“Valerie, you are doing great things!!! I wish my dad was your patient. He does not have Parkinson’s, but he has significant balance issues. PT has helped him immensely. I wish that you could evaluate him someday. You are one of the best!!!! I miss working with you!”
The results have been immediate. I feel better (more free in my movements) than I have since my diagnosis and will be discussing dropping one of my medication at my next neurological appointment.
“Thank you Valerie Waldron Johnson and Balance Therapy for keeping this Parkinson’s person more limber and more symptom free with your knowledge of correct exercises, stretches and cardio to help delay Parkinson’s progress! I look forward to all our sessions!”
Valerie a just checking in to let you know my recovery has gone extremely well. Thank you for helping restore my balance and strength. You are a miracle worker.
