We have several therapists that are certified LSVT BIG® instructors. LSVT BIG® is an exercise protocol geared specifically for those that suffer from Parkinson's disease. The exercises are designed to override bradykinesia and improve patients' speed and amplitude of movement. Our therapists will work one-on-one with each patient to address their direct needs and functional limitations. Visit the LSVT BIG® website at www.lsvtglobal.com for more information.
We have two therapists, Lindsey Hunt and Kari Torgerson, that are certified PWR!Moves® instructors. PWR!Moves® is an exercise protocol designed for individuals with Parkinson's disease. PWR!Moves® focuses on improving bradykinesia, along with other common Parkinson's symptoms such as rigidity, poor coordination, flexibility, and cognition. Visit the PWR!Gym® website for more information at www.pwr4life.org.

Research has demonstrated functional improvements at all stages of the disease. Your therapist will determine with you which treatment protocol best suits your needs.
