Parkinson's Disease Treatments
LSVT BIG® and LSVT LOUD® Therapies
Since 2015, ProMedica has offered innovative rehabilitation programs featuring the proven LSVT (Lee Silberman Voice Treatment) BIG® and LSVT LOUD® therapy programs. These groundbreaking programs are for people with Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions that affect movement and/or speech. Research suggests that the earlier in the disease that patients begin the BIG and/or LOUD programs, the better their outcomes will be.
Physical/occupational therapy provides the BIG by improving the patient's ability to move safely, through enhancements in gait, limb movement and balance.
Speech therapy provides the LOUD, by improving speech through stimulation of the muscles in the voice box, and exercises to enhance speech.
