Reid Rock Steady Boxing
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurological disorder that affects nearly 1.5 million people in the United States. It is a disease that currently has no cure nor has research determined its cause. As the noted Movement Disorder Specialist, neurologist Abraham Lieberman, M.D. has described it, “Every day, people with Parkinson’s awaken, trapped in their bodies.”
Reid is proud to be the first hospital affiliate for Rock Steady Boxing!

Rock Steady Boxing (RSB), Inc., founded in 2006
RSB provides a uniquely effective form of exercise along with group support. Area residents struggling with Parkinson’s disease can attend classes at Reid Rehab Center. Using non-contact boxing-inspired fitness routines, participants can dramatically improve their ability to live independent lives.
In addition to the neurological improvement created through the rigorous forced exercise regimen, there is a bond among participants and those charged with providing care. This community of support can improve the well-being of persons with Parkinson’s as well as their caregivers and loved ones.
RSB delivers a message of hope and motivation to those who have been told that each day their movement and cognitive ability will worsen. And the results have been stunning!
