LSVT® BIG therapy is a research proven exercise program which includes repetitive, exaggerated movements that help to counteract the slow movement that is one of the main motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
LSVT® BIG therapy can also benefit patients, whose motor function has been affected by other conditions, including stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome.
LSVT® BIG promotes strength, motor learning and changes in brain function and patients have been showing impressive progress; including faster walking with bigger steps, better balance and increased trunk rotation.
This treatment is administered by a licensed LSVT® BIG provider in 16 sessions over one month (four individual 60 minute sessions per week). Once finished with the program, we offer a DVD exercise program in which our therapist demonstrates all of the exercises done in the LSVT® BIG program.
PDR Physical Therapy & Wellness Center has two licensed LSVT® BIG providers, Eva Krecisz PT and Laura Wodka PTA.
