RAMC Offers LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD Therapy Programs for Parkinson’s Patients
Do you have or know someone with Parkinson’s Disease (PD)? Did you know that virtually every person (89%) with PD will have problems with loss of balance or speech impairment that starts early in the disease process and which will progressively diminish quality of life?
Reedsburg Area Medical Center is proud to offer two new programs - LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD, dedicated to improve balance and speech for those with Parkinson’s Disease or other neurological conditions. LSVT BIG trains individuals to use bigger movements anywhere, anytime in daily living. This empowers individuals with the potential they have to keep moving and stay active. LSVT LOUD improves vocal loudness, speech intelligibility and facial expression which, in turn, improves confidence.
LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD each consist of:
- 16 sessions; 4 consecutive days a week for 4 weeks
- Individual 1 hour sessions
- Daily homework
- Daily carryover exercises
LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD help establish a life-long habit of improved big practice and communication.
To make an appointment with one of our LSVT BIG/ LSVT LOUD certified therapists or for more information call RAMC’s Rehabilitation Department at 768-6120.
