What is the LSVT BIG Program?
This treatment is administered using a protocol that was developed specifically to address the unique movement impairments for people with Parkinson’s Disease. The protocol is intensive, with many repetitions of core movements that you use in your everyday life to change how the brain processes and performs movement.
Your therapist will truly help you stay as active and independent as possible. You will be taught special exercises and techniques to improve your symptoms. Depending on the nature or severity of your Parkinson’s Disease, your treatment program may focus on treatment to help you:
- Improve your overall fitness and strength
- Develop the best way to get in and out of bed, chairs, cars, etc.
- Improve your coordination with walking
- Improve your hand movement ability
- Decrease your risk of falls
- Decrease freezing movement
