LSVT BIG (Parkinson’s)
Centers of Excellence
LSVT (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) BIG is an intensive physical and occupational therapy exercise program for people with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders. A research-based approach to exercise, LSVT BIG is a treatment program that’s proven to help individuals with Parkinson’s disease, giving them new hope for improved communication, movement, and quality of life.
How it works: Our LSVT BIG-certified clinicians guide the patients in relearning skills — everything from writing and pushing a grocery basket to drinking a cup of coffee and playing miniature golf. Treatment consists of individual one-hour sessions and daily carryover exercises and practice at home.
Research on the physical therapy program LSVT BIG has documented improvements such as: faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance, and increased trunk rotation. LSVT BIG trains individuals with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions to use bigger movements in daily living.
