About The LSVT BIG Program
LSVT BIG is a program designed to train individuals with Parkinson’s disease to use their body more optimally. Individuals with Parkinson’s disease often progress to more slower and smaller movements, leading to increased difficulties with activities of daily living. Difficulties can include walking, getting dressed, getting in and out of cars and maintaining balance while performing simple to complex tasks.
Trained professionals are able to teach individuals how to produce bigger motions, with greater amplitude, to eventually normalize movements for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. LSVT BIG treatment is aimed at helping individuals improve function in all aspects of daily living, improve quality of life and to continue being as independent as possible throughout their disease progression
