What to expect during LSVT BIG therapy
Individuals with Parkinson’s disease often experience tremors, slowed movement, and other symptoms.
During LSVT BIG™ sessions, a physical therapist leads patients through highly intensive, repetitive, whole-body, large-motion exercises that “retrain” the brain to make bigger movements.
The therapy includes:
- 16 individual sessions
- One hour sessions
- Four sessions per week in one month
- Daily homework
Parkinson’s disease can take away your ability to move the way you want-LSVT BIG™ therapy can help restore it. Research shows:
- Faster walking with bigger steps
- Improved balance
- Increased trunk rotation
With improved movement and more confidence, you’ll notice more ease when walking, getting up and moving, and daily activities.
The program can help you stay active and improve your quality of life!
