Ali treated for neck and back condition
BERRIEN SPRINGS, Mich. — Muhammad Ali was treated for a back and neck condition, and is now undergoing follow-up physical therapy.
Ali spokesman Craig Bankey said Thursday that the former heavyweight champion, treated at Emory University in Atlanta, will return to his regular routine of public appearances when therapy is completed.
Ali will be at the grand opening of the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Ky., on Nov. 19, Bankey said in a statement. Ali’s office was responding to recent published reports concerning his health.
The 63-year-old Ali has Parkinson’s disease. “Like Parkinson’s patients around the world, Muhammad faces challenges each day,” Bankey said. “He continues to fight Parkinson’s disease with the same courage and dedication he brought to the ring and to his work aimed at alleviating poverty, hunger and intolerance.”
