1. Utilizing ‘shoulder engagement’ to prevent
tremors, as the action of depressing and retractingthe shoulder blades inhibit a resting tremor.
*A characteristic feature of Parkinson's disease resting tremor is its decrease during voluntary movements (Deuschl et al., 2000).
2. Hinging with weight centered under ankles:When Leonard would get his weight over the balls of his feet, he would have the tendency of falling forward, by hinging his weight over his ankles he would be able to swing without falling.
3. Pulling from the right shoulder blade.
If Leonardbegan his swing with a push from his left shoulder, he would fall off balance. The more centralized turn he could create was beginning the swing with a pulling of his right shoulder, specifically the shoulder blade.
