Keep Your Movement Alive!

Parkinson's and Your Body                                                

Parkinson's disease (PD) causes movements to become smaller and slower than typical. It also affects balance, coordination, and posture. These changes can diminish your confidence, speed, and safety with common tasks.

LSVT BIG Can Help!

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

  • Faster walking with bigger steps
  • Improved balance
  • Better movement in the torso
  • Reduced risk of falling
