The primary impairments of congestive heart failure (CHF) and Parkinson disease (PD) interact and present a unique challenge to rehabilitation. There is limited evidence on the PT management of both CHF and PD in the literature. The purpose of this case report is to present the PT management and outcomes of cardiovascular endurance training, gait training, therapeutic exercise, and balance activities for a patient with acute CHF and PD.
