LSVT BIG Certified

LSVT BIG is a research-based exercise approach developed from principles of the effective Parkinson’s specific speech treatment LSVT LOUD.  The LSVT Programs have been developed and scientifically researched over the past 20 years with funding from the National Institutes of Health.  Research on LSVT BIG has documented improved ratings on tests of motor functioning in people with Parkinson’s Disease following treatment. Improvements include faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance and increased trunk rotation.  LSVT BIG treatment translates bigger movements into real-world, everyday activities. It also helps to teach how to avoid inactivity and to keep movements ALIVE during everyday activities.

It is essential that LSVT BIG treatments are delivered by a therapist that is certified in this method.  At Armor Physical Therapy in Plainwell, Stacie Rayman, PT has been certified by LSVT Global,Inc to provide treatment for individuals with movement disorders related to Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological disorders using the LSVT BIG modalities.
