Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease or PD is the second-most common neuro-degenerative disease after Alzheimer’s Disease. PD is a brain disorder that causes uncontrollable movements, such as shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Symptoms usually begin gradually and worsen over time. Exercise can greatly increase the quality of life for people with PD. And believe it or not, boxing is especially good for those living with PD.
