Treating Parkinson’s Disease for Many Morgantown-Area Patients
LSVT BIG is a great treatment for patients with Parkinson’s disease, also called PD. PD can cause shaking and the slowing down of movements. PD eventually slows down motor functions, and patients may struggle to walk, get dressed, and perform regular activities. LSVT BIG is a completely custom treatment that will work on the patient’s specific needs.
Patients may work on various skills and functions, like buttoning clothes, walking, and eating. This treatment allows for those with PD to know when to use “bigger” movements and how to notice social cues to do so. LSVT BIG can essentially reprogram the brain to better quality of life.
