Parkinson’s Disease Therapy
We can help those with Parkinson’s disease improve gross and fine motor functions by using a treatment known as LSVT BIG. LSVT BIG uses exercises that involve large movements and patterns to help retain larger amplitude for smoother and easier movements in everyday life. LSVT BIG can lead to:
- Faster walking with bigger steps
- Improved balance
- Increased trunk rotation
- Improvements in activities of daily living, such as bed mobility
- Improved Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Motor Score
The treatment consists of four sessions a week for four weeks, daily home practices and carryover exercises. Each session is customized to you and your needs. Talk to your physical therapist if you are interested in learning more about LSVT BIG.
