LSVT® therapies show level 1 evidence in helping to restore oral communication and motor coordination in individuals with Parksinson’s Disease beyond what other interventions – such as pharmacological or surgical – offer. LSVT® patients are more effective and emotionally engaged communicators after treatment. The LSVT® LOUD program itself is an intensive voice treatment program based on motor learning theory and is given in 16 sessions in one month. Homework consists of intensive practicing outside the clinical setting – once a day on clinic days and twice a day otherwise. The LSVT® BIG program applies the principles and approach of LSVT® LOUD to improving major motor skills, to improve things like gait, limb movement, and balance. Overall, both program components positively impact the patient’s quality of life. Both LSVT® BIG and LSVT® LOUD will be offered by certified therapists at Advance Rehab Centre in 2011.
