You hear a lot about football players and how they develop neurological diseases from years of playing. Their chances of developing dementia is well above that of the general population. I was interested in finding out if this was also the case for Parkinson's Disease. I went right to the source.
Has there been any kind of link between sports head injuries and Parkinson's? You see all kinds of stories about Football players and how they later develop Dementia/Alzheimers. I would think there would be the same sort of relationship with Parkinson's?
