Rock Steady Boxing at Hancock Wellness Center
Boxers undergo a diverse training regimen to achieve the optimal body control it takes to be a good fighter. Boxers train to improve balance, hand-eye coordination, speed of movement, agility, muscle power, mental focus, and rhythm.
All of these things happen to be issues for people with Parkinson’s. So instead of focusing on the specific symptoms of Parkinson’s, people can learn a new skill that is fun and a good stress reliever while addressing many of the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
