INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (WTHR) -- Some Parkinson's patients are literally taking their fight into the boxing gym.

Actor Michael J. Fox has been vocal about his battle with Parkinson's. It's part of the plot of his primetime show on NBC every Thursday night.

For many, the degenerative disease means an end to work, and sometimes hope. But in Indianapolis, doctors say their patients are finding promise in a local gym.

Parkinson's patients experience stiffness, shakes or tremors and trouble with their balance. But time in the gym is helping them loosen up and fight back.
