LSVT BIG for Parkinson’s
LSVT BIG is a physical therapy program that trains people with Parkinson’s Disease to use their body properly. People suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, and other neurological conditions, may move differently by using gestures that are slower. LSVT BIG is designed to increase strength, motor learning, and brain function in Parkinson’s patients. These steps will allow those suffering to improve movement during simple tasks such as buttoning a shirt or getting up from a sofa.
