3 Benefits of the LSVT BIG Program for Parkinson's Patients, ,

When a loved one is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, one of the best ways you can look after them is by researching proven treatments that may help. LVST BIG is a science-backed program used in physical therapy that may help improve movement for those who have Parkinson’s or other neurological conditions. The guide below explains several ways it can improve their quality of life.

What Can the LSVT BIG Program Help?

1. Improved Balance

Those with Parkinson’s can display a variety of symptoms, but the gradual decline of movement is the most commonly seen. Using the LVST BIG program in a physical therapy setting, your loved one can learn how to reclaim movement patterns that help them walk. Improvements in arm swing, length of stride, and trunk rotation will become readily apparent. Since these treatments are most effective when started early, talk to your loved one about the program as soon as possible.

It can be difficult to see your loved one struggle with everyday tasks. Through the LVST BIG program, patients will re-learn minor movements such as buttoning their shirt when getting dressed, which can give them a renewed sense of independence.

3. Whole-Body Integration

This physical therapy technique incorporates a holistic approach, not only assessing movement improvements, but also cognitive and emotional changes. Individuals must “think big” when it comes to the movement they want to perform. Applying this mentality can help patients achieve faster and more natural movement patterns for those who have Parkinson’s disease.
