LSVT BIG is an intensive program to treat movement disorders associated with Parkinson’s Disease. People with Parkinson’s Disease often notice changes in their ability to move. While the symptoms can be different from person to person, common changes include the ability to walk, the development of tremors, or movements that are smaller or slower than normal. LSVT BIG works to retrain the brain and body to generate larger, smoother movements in all aspects of daily life from walking to bathing and dressing.

LSVT BIG has been effective for many individuals, regardless of the severity of the symptoms. Patients who are in the early or middle stages may see a greater level of improvement, however function can be improved even in later stages of Parkinson’s Disease. While most of the research and clinical evidence has been conducted with patients with Parkinson’s Disease, there is evidence that LSVT may also benefit those with other neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, or atypical Parkinsonism.
