LSVT BIG is a treatment technique that has been found to be very effective in the management of people with Parkinson’s disease. This treatment technique has been scientifically researched for over 20 years, and has been shown to improve balance, walking speed and step length, as well as ability to perform daily activities with improved control and function.
LSVT BIG treatment is a standardized treatment protocol that is customized to meet the needs of each patient, based on his/her skill level and individual functional goals. This treatment is only delivered by therapists who are certified in this method. At Peak Rehab all of our therapists are certified in LSVT BIG.
The treatment consists of:
1. 16 sessions (4 consecutive days a week for 4 consecutive weeks)
2. Individual 1 hour sessions
3. Daily homework practice
