Parkinson, Head Trauma, Head InjuryMuhammad Ali’s Bout with Parkinson’s

Maryum Ali (May May for short) is Muhammad Ali’s oldest daughter. She recently told HealthDay News that at 73 years of age, her dad is still taking on the disease the same way he would an opponent in the ring – with total confidence.

Ali’s first diagnosis in 1981 had a positive prognosis. He was told that the condition would not be progressive. In 1984, re received the news that the initial diagnosis was incorrect. What symptoms does the former champ need to contend with? He and about half a million Americans must deal with:

  • Tremors (especially in the arms, hands, legs, face, and jaw)
  • Limb rigidity
  • Slow movement

The result is that common tasks such as walking or speaking become increasingly difficult. May May gives some good advice to anyone afflicted by this disease, “Make it your business to know everything you can about what it is that’s affecting your life.” Yes, knowledge is power when fighting a chronic illness.

Natural Parkinson’s Relief Care in Dublin, California


An Upright MRI can be used along with a dedicated software to fin damage caused by past trauma, even injuries that took place over a decade ago. These injuries may restrict the flow of blood or cerebrospinal fluid. These obstructions can cause brain abnormalities that result in chronic conditions like Parkinson’s multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s, to name a few.

In Dublin, California, Upper Cervical Chiropractor Dr. Andrea Pritchett is examining the C1 and C2 vertebrae for misalignments than can cause a blockage in the flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid.
