LSVT® BIG is designed for patients with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological movement disorders to move BIGGER and BETTER. The program uses large amplitude and high intensity movements to normalize everyday activities and restore sensory calibration. This means connecting the brain with bigger movements that are within normal limits to others.

LSVT® BIG protocol consists of 16 visits with a certified LSVT physical therapy and an initial evaluation to assess baseline function. The patient is given daily homework and carryover assignments in order to evoke a lifestyle change reaching beyond the clinic. Each program is individualized to the patient’s needs and functional goals in order for the patient to learn the tools to function better, and have a higher quality of life.
