When It All Began
In 1994, A. Kreig Marks', (the founder of the PFC) father was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. A year later in 1995, his Aunt was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. At that time, Kreig's thriving physical therapy practice focused on orthopedics and sports medicine. All that nearly changed overnight. Kreig began to study PD and MS and over the years became a Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Specialist and developed unique methods and techniques to help combat and manage the symptoms of both diseases and became very popular on the speaking circuits.
Nearly 25 years later, Kreig has worked with over 5000 people living with Parkinson's Disease and over 2400 people living with Multiple Sclerosis. He has well over 100,000 documented clinical hours and the symptom stabilization and improvement rate with his clients who are consistent and follow through with proper nutrition and home exercises is hovering near 80%.
Kreig and his program are in high demand. He is affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic of Weston, Florida, along with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Kreig has been interviewed by local news media in South Florida along with CNN, CCTV, the New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, and many other media outlets. In 2014, the National Parkinson Foundation began offering a limited number of grants to local businesses offering unique therapeutic support to people living with PD. Kreig's program received one of the first Grants. However, Kreig now refuses any grant funding so other practitioners can benefit.
