LSVT


LSVT BIG

The BIG program will provide the intensive practice needed for the brain to re-learn normal movement patterns. This program can help people with Parkinson’s to:

  • Decrease their risk of falling
  • Improve walking form & safety with community mobility on varied surfaces
  • Increase balance & confidence with daily activities
  • Learn a Home Exercise Program to continue after

LSVT Loud

Don’t trust your brain to tell you when you are speaking loud and clear enough. Parkinson’s disease can often cause faulty feedback. This program can help people with Parkinson’s to:

  • Increase vocal loudness & intonation
  • Improve articulation and speech intelligibility
  • Improvement in facial expression
  • Improve confidence

For more information on both programs go to the LSVT Global website. You will also be able to locate providers in your area.
