LSVT BIG®

LSVT BIG® is a research-based approach to exercise based on Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (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.

What to Expect

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.

Therapists

They were considerate of my needs when it came to scheduling and were very compassionate and knowledgeable about my injury and guided me with exercises at the facility as well as a regimen to follow on my own. Pretty much everything I could ask for – skill, knowledge, compassion, and friendliness.
