LSVT BIG is an intensive amplitude-based exercise program for the limb motor system. It provides re-education of the sensorimotor system for those with Parkinson's Disease and other neuromuscular disorders. LSVT Big focuses on strength, movement, balance, coordination, and function with carryover to everyday life activities. Each treatment focuses on the production of large amplitude (BIG) whole body movements. This program will teach you how to avoid inactivity and keep your movements ALIVE, as well as help you participate fully and improve the quality of your life.
LSVT LOUD is an intensive exercise program for the speech motor system, the goal of which is to help those with Parkinson's Disease get their voice back. The program specifically targets vocal loudness for those who have lost volume in their speech. This will often cause a social decline as people find it more difficult to communicate with their loved ones and caregivers.
VitalSim Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for patients experiencing difficulty in swallowing or dysphagia. The VitalStim system is a non-invasive therapy for treating dysphagia through the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation, which is applied to the front of the neck. VitalStim Therapy is backed by multiple clinical studies. The VitalStim Therapy System is the only technology approved by the FDA for restoring swallowing function in patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia. The VitalStim Therapy System uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. At the same time, trained specialists (Speech-Language Pathologists) help patients to re-educate their muscles through rehabilitation therapy.
