Parkinson’s Disease

LSVT BIG

LSVT BIG is an individually customized therapy program that provides quality gross motor movement exercises. These exercises promote improved movements needed for balance, walking, posture, strength, endurance, and independence with daily activities. LSVT BIG assists individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s in “recalibrating” how they perceive their movements with what others see. It also teaches individuals how and when to apply extra effort to produce bigger motions; more like the movements of everyone around them.

LSVT BIG can assist patients with mild, moderate, and advanced Parkinson’s. It can also benefit people who have Atypical Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and other neurological and cognitive impairments.

The benefits of LSVT BIG include but are not limited to:

  • Improved quality of movements,
  • Reduced secondary complications, including falls,
  • Greater range of motion and strength,
  • Increased endurance to engage in self-care tasks/activities of leisure,
  • Improved overall quality of life.

LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions to use their body more normally. People living with Parkinson’s or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. They may have trouble with getting around, getting dressed, and with other activities of daily living. LSVT BIG effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether “small motor” tasks like buttoning a shirt or “large motor” tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. The treatment improves walking, self-care, and other tasks. It also teaches them how and when to apply extra effort to produce bigger motions – more like the movements of everyone around them.

Because LSVT BIG treatment is customized to each person’s specific needs and goals, it can help regardless of the stage or severity of your condition. Beginning your work with LSVT BIG before you have noticed significant problems with balance, mobility, or posture will often lead to the best results, but it is never too late to start. LSVT BIG can produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable physical difficulties.
