We are please to announce that we are now certified in LSVT BIG™ therapy for rehabilitation of patients with Parkinson's diease.

What is LSVT BIG™ ?

LSVT BIG™ is an innovative physical therapy program for improving motor skills in individuals with Parkinson's Disease.

The method was developed and extensively researched with funding from the National Institutes of Health for over 20 years.Their research documents improved motor function tests following this specific form of treatment of Parkinson's Disease patients.

These improvements include:

  • Faster walking with bigger steps
  • Improved balance
  • Increased trunk rotation

The LSVT BIG™ protocol consists of:

  • 16 sessions: four consecutive days a week for four weeks
  • Individual one hour sessions
  • Daily homework practice
  • Daily carryover exercises

This program can only be performed by certified PT’s and OT’s as it is very specialized.

The program consists of a series of daily exercises modified for the patient’s ability level. Our Physical Therapists will also tailor individual exercises and tasks to address the patient’s specific functional problems. LSVT BIG™ empowers the patient to change their movement patterns for the future.

It is never too soon or too late to start LSVT BIG™ therapy
