Samenvatting

Objective: To investigate the size of the short-term effect of a dance/movement therapy (DMT) program on the quality of life of the patient with Parkinson’s disease (PD)?” Design: Literature Review / Qualitative study in form of a Pilot Study Setting: Hogeschool van Amsterdam (NL) / Sport Medisch Center Amsterdam (NL) Subjects: Test subjects (n =6) that have been diagnosed with PD in an early stage of the disease process (Hoehn & Jahr stage II-III). Intervention: Test subjects who fulfilled the inclusion criteria have been recruited to the study. The subjects underwent a weekly DMT program of 6 weeks duration with a total of 8 DMT sessions. Each program had a duration of 60 min and took place 1-2 times per week. Measures: Disease specific questionnaires and tests (PDQ-39, UPDRS II & III) as well as a general motor performance test (TUG) and a final questionnaire for patient satisfaction were used for the evaluation of motor performance. To be tested andfilled in by the subject in the beginning of the intervention in order to set a baseline and at the end of the intervention. Results: The results was be measured via repeated ANOVA. Alpha-value <0,05 (5%) for significance. Conclusion: Throughout the reviewed literaturebenefits were reported in motor functions like walking, walking time and increased range of motion as well as for emotional functions. DMT and related mind-body oriented therapies have physiologic and psycho-social benefits for patients with PD and/or other chronic and/or neurologic conditions. The results of the pilot study in DMT showeda significant short- term effect on the quality of life in patients with PD in following areas: During the TUG significantly increased speed of walking (p<0.014) was observed. Test sections (PDQ-39) that included questions about “stigmatization” (p<0,03) and “cognition” (p<0,043) showed significant deteterioration, which is possibly a result of increased awareness due to individual or group processes during the dance oriented therapy in combination with the relatively short intervention time. A DMT program of longer duration can possibly reverse the outcome. On a subjective level, participants evaluated the therapy as an asset that added quality to their life.
