LSVT BIG!®

The GOld-Standard for Parkinson’s Disease Movement

Neuroplasticity—the brain's ability to form new connections is the foundation for the treatment of LSVT BIG® .  LSVT® is a treatment approach for people with Parkinson’s disease that addresses the cognitive aspects of the disease, leading to significant improvements in function, balance, and gait.

Patients are given specific exercises involving large amplitude and exaggerated movement patterns. Research conducted by the National Institutes of Health reveal that this therapy leads to smoother, larger, and safer movements as well as improved quality of life. High intensity exercises is also shown to delay the progress of falling dopamine levels in the body. 

Dr. Harry, DPT, CMFPT, Cert-DN is one of the only physical therapist in the Orlando area providing LSVT BIG®  in the home. This greatly eases the burden of getting to and from a clinic daily, and also provides privacy, and real-life settings to tackle challenges. Treatments delivered by LSVT®-certified clinicians consist of the following:

  • Four LSVT-BIG® sessions a week, for four consecutive weeks (16 LSVT visits).

  • A thorough evaluation and discharge session, one prior and one following the 16 LSVT® visits.

  • Individual one-hour treatment sessions.

  • Daily homework practice (all 30 days of the month).

  • Daily carryover assignments (all 30 days of the month).

  • An option to taper off into maintenance visits to ensure follow-through.

This treatment is ideal for anyone who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, whether you have been living with this condition for years, or been recently diagnosed.

Results show significant improvement in the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS-motor) following LSVT BIG® when compared to a walking program and home exercise program after 16 weeks. The lower line indicates decreased disability. Over time, people following the LSVT BIG® program improved function more and more.

Wellness / Fitness

 
 

Wellness visits are visits designed to improve your overall health, general wellness, or performance in a sport or hobby.  Unlike a personal trainer who performs similar fitness visits, these visits are performed by an expert in body movement - a doctor of physical therapy. Being trained by a physical therapist ensures that the most optimal evidence-based exercises will be utilized in the safest - possible way.

As wellness visits are not deemed medically necessary, all wellness visits are paid in cash. For a more detailed explanation of what is considered medically necessary click here
