Practicing BIG movements during intense therapy sessions can help individuals resume or continue daily self-care activities. The larger-than-life movements used during LSVT BIG® treatments help people improve:
  • Walking speed
  • Stride length
  • Twisting and turning motion
  • Posture
  • Flexibility
  • Balance
  • Strength
  • Endurance
  • Arm movement
  • Leg movement

The movements encourage people to think big and move bigger as they complete the targeted exercises using maximum effort and the largest range-of-motion possible. LSVT BIG® therapy helps people create new associations between their perceived level of effort and normal output.

When treatment starts at diagnosis or when symptoms appear, it has the greatest effect. People often can resume or maintain an active lifestyle. However, the benefits of LSVT BIG® are seen no matter where in the disease progression a person begins therapy. Learning to control and improve their ability to move gives people confidence and allows them to enjoy a better quality of life.
