What is LSVT Big?

August 25, 2022

LSVT Big is an intensive physical therapy program designed to improve movement, balance, and overall functioning in individuals with Parkinson’s disease or other neurological conditions. The program uses a series of exercises and drills that are designed to improve motor function, body awareness, and coordination.

The LSVT Big program is based on the principles of the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), a treatment program developed for individuals with Parkinson’s disease who experience difficulty with speech and voice. The LSVT Big program uses similar principles but focuses on the physical aspects of movement and mobility.

The program consists of 16 sessions over four weeks, with each session lasting approximately one hour. The exercises are designed to be challenging and intense, with a focus on large movements that are exaggerated to improve body mechanics, posture, and balance. Sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each patient and are designed to challenge them at their individual level.

The LSVT Big program is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself and create new neural connections. By performing large, intense movements, individuals can stimulate the brain to create new connections and improve their overall motor function.

The LSVT Big program has been shown to be effective in improving movement and mobility in individuals with Parkinson’s disease or other neurological conditions. The program has been found to improve balance, gait speed, and overall functional ability, leading to a better quality of life for participants. The program is typically offered by physical therapists who have been specially trained in the LSVT Big method.
