Parkinson's Disease Therapy

LSVT BIG® is a research-based approach developed from principles of the effective Parkinson's specific speech treatment LSVT LOUD.

The LSVT Programs have been developed and scientifically researched over the past 20 years with funding from the National Institute of Health.

Research on LSVT BIG has documented improved ratings on tests of motor functioning in people with PD following treatment. Improvements include:

  • Faster walking and bigger steps
  • Improved balance
  • Increased trunk rotation

LSVT BIG is a standardized treatment protocol.


LSVT BIG Exercises

  • 16 sessions: 4 consecutive days a week for 4 weeks
  • Individual 1 hour sessions
  • Daily homework practice
  • Daily caryover exercises

LSVT BIG will help you establish a life-long habit of BIG Practice

LSVT BIG Treatment

  • Trains a single target of amplitude (bigger movements)
  • Drives intensive and high-effort practice
  • Teaches the amount of effort required to produce normal movements
  • Translates bigger movements into real-world, everyday activities.
  • Empowers people with PD with their potential to improve!

LSVT BIG will teach you how to avoid inactivity and keep your movements ALIVE during everyday activities. It will help you participate fully and improve the quality of your life!
