We’ve got BIG news for those living with Parkinson’s.

Posted by Gayle Young on Jun 24, 2019 11:17:27 AM

Parkinson’s disease affects the way people move, often leading to increasingly smaller gestures and less efficient movements. Those changes cause difficulty moving around, getting dressed, and performing countless other daily living activities. Beginning treatment soon after a Parkinson’s diagnosis can help manage long-term problems with balance, mobility, and posture.

LSVT BIG® therapy trains individuals with Parkinson’s disease how to use their bodies more effectively. Using whole-body exercises and promoting a “think big” mindset, BIG programming reteaches participants how regular movements should feel.

Sunset Village Rehab is pleased to announce that we have added the LSVT BIG treatment protocol to our therapy programming. Our LSVT BIG-certified clinician will customize BIG treatment to each client’s specific needs and goals.
