Boxing Helps Parkinson's Patients Fight Back

As seen on THV11

Parkinson's can be brutal. It gradually disconnects the brain from the body. It affects our movement and even our ability to talk. So, it's ironic that something like boxing can help with the effects of Parkinson's.

The Rock Steady Boxing program is growing across the country. It is a fun, unconventional way to battle the disease. That program is available at the First Baptist Church in Hot Springs. Dr. Kara Way, Neurologist at CHI St. Vincent Neurology Clinic - Hot Springs, recommends Rock Steady Boxing to her patients with Parkinson's. "It's fun," says Dr. Way, "we know that things like endurance and coordination and walking speed and all those things have improved after participation in Rock Steady Boxing."
