Treatment of Parkinson Disease and other neurologic conditions are addressed by our LSVT BIG certified clinicians. LSVT BIG is an intensive physical therapy exercise program that adheres to principles of practice that promote strength, motor learning, and changes in brain function. Each treatment focuses on the production of large amplitude whole body functional movements. These treatments have been shown to provide the following benefits:
• Faster walking with bigger steps
• Better balance
• Increased trunk rotation
Even though medications are very effective early on at alleviating most of the symptoms of Parkinson Disease and other neurological conditions, scientific research suggests that you should NOT wait until you begin to experience disability, impaired function, or loss of balance to begin to exercise. LSVT BIG will teach you how to avoid inactivity and keep your movements ALIVE during everyday activities which will help improve the quality of your life!
For optimum results it is essential that LSVT BIG treatments are delivered by a physical therapist certified in this method.
