LSVT BIG exercise program at Neurospace Canberra

LSVT BIG is a 4 week exercise program designed to tackle the movement deficits of Parkinson’s Disease.

People with Parkinson’s typically experience slow, shuffling gait without arm swing. Daily activities such as dressing and rolling in bed become slow and clumsy.

LSVT BIG teaches participants to use BIG effort to perform stronger movements. Over the 4 week program THINKING BIG becomes a habit and participants are able to walk faster with bigger steps, improve balance and stamina and increase trunk rotation.

The clip below shows some of the improvements experienced by the LSVT BIG participants at Neurospace.
