Compassionate Multidisciplinary Care

LSVT is an evidence-based therapy program comprised of two treatments that are specifically designed to treat Parkinson’s disease. Both programs are customized to each person’s specific needs and can help regardless of the stage or severity of your condition.

LSVT BIG

LSVT BIG is an intensive and effective physical and occupational therapy approach to treating individuals with Parkinson’s disease. People living with Parkinson’s disease or other neurological conditions often experience difficulty moving, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. LSVT BIG effectively trains improved movements for any activity, from buttoning a shirt to walking up the stairs.

Research has shown Parkinson’s patients significantly improve in the following areas through treatment using the LSVT BIG program:

  • Faster walking with bigger steps
  • Balance
  • Trunk rotation
  • Daily activities such as bed mobility

LSVT LOUD

LSVT LOUD is an intensive speech therapy program that treats voice and speech disorders in people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Although developed for patients at all stages of PD, LSVT LOUD has applications to other neurological disorders resulting in speech difficulty.

Research has shown Parkinson’s patients significantly improve in the following areas through LSVT LOUD treatment:

  • Vocal loudness
  • Articulation and speech intelligibility
  • Intonation
  • Facial expression
