LSVT BIG is a research-based approach to exercise based on LSVT LOUD principles designed for people with Parkinson’s Disease. It is an intensive, large-amplitude program for movement and re-education of the sensorimotor system that affects how people move and function in their environments. The primary focus of the program is to normalize movement through large-amplitude movement patterns to result in significant changes in a person’s life.
LSVT BIG is a very specific and standardized exercise program. In-clinic therapy is four consecutive days a week for four weeks; one hour each day where the exercises are performed at 7-9/10 on a work intensity scale. Specific exercises are set up to be done daily at home as well as specific carry-over exercises that may build on for improved function. The idea is that these exercises become life-long habits that make a positive impact on the person’s quality of life.
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.
After a year of pelvic pain, my PA referred me to Lisa in hopes she could help. Now after 6 weeks, the pain is gone, and the quality of my life has significantly improved. The stress and anxiety that plagued me has been alleviated, and I am no longer terrified that I will have to deal with pain for the rest of my life.Morgan
