Boxing Program Helps People With Parkinson’s Disease

Boxing Program Helps People With Parkinson’s Disease

The physical fitness business Rock Steady Boxing NOVA gym opened in McLean, Virginia last December.

That was the good news for 75-year-old Neil Eisner. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease six years ago. He finds the boxing a helpful way to fight back against the disease.

Parkinson’s disease affects the nervous system and causes people’s muscles to become weak and their arms and legs to shake.
