LSVT BIG for Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders:
Something BIG has come to Cranberry Township! LSVT BIG® is a new treatment option for individuals who have Parkinson’s disease. This specific research based rehab protocol can help both the newly diagnosed patient as well as the patient who may be further along in the disease process. The program includes one on one training sessions as well as carry over exercises for home by a certified clinician. Research has shown that faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance and increased trunk rotation can result. LSVT BIG ® is covered by most health insurances including Medicare.
