Advice & Tips: The LSVT Program is one of the most amazing programs that all Parkinson's patients should go through. I have had further health problems which has caused me not be complete my daily exercises; but when I could do all of them, I felt like I almost didn't have PD, which was the greatest feeling in the world!!

Advice & Tips: I was almost immobile and homebound. My neurologist suggested LSVT BIG because it was specifically made for PD patients. It is a very INTENSE program. It is 4 weeks, 4 days a week, 2 hours each visit. They exercise & push you to the max. You have to do homework: wrist exercises, speech exercises, writing exercises, facial exercises. You have to exercise EVERY morning & EVERY night. It is excruciating, it is painful, it is exhausting, BUT IT WORKS! I can now walk without my walker, I can go up & down stairs, I can lift heavy things without dropping them, and I CAN DO JUMPING JACKS!! This program took me, a 52-year-old almost immobile PD patient & turned me in to an almost completely functioning person. The journey was amazing & overwhelming. I am doing things I haven't done in the 7 years that I have had PD. EVERYONE NEEDS THIS PROGRAM!!!!
