Parkinson's Rehabilitation

Early treatment of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease can lead to a better quality of life. We offer LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® programs which are evidence-based speech, physical and occupational therapies for people in all stages of Parkinson's. 

LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® are two different programs:

What is LSVT BIG® and LOUD®?

LSVT BIG® improves mobility and movement used in everyday function through physical and/or occupational therapy. It is an intensive one-on-one treatment program designed to train people with Parkinson's to use their body more normally. Treatment is customized to individual needs and goals and has been shown to be effective at all stages and severity of the disease. Participants have shown improvement in motor function including: faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance, and increased body rotation.

LSVT LOUD® improves communication in daily living through speech therapy. It is an effective speech treatment developed for people with Parkinson's to use their voice at a more normal loudness level while speaking at home, work and in the community. Participants have shown improvement including: increased vocal loudness, greater articulation and speech intelligibility.

Scientific and clinical research support these treatment programs in impacting quality of life.

LSVT BIG® and LOUD® Treatment
