New Treatment for Parkinson's Patients
April 04, 2013
Saad Healthcare is pleased to announce that we are now offering a new exercise-based treatment program designed to combat the devastating effects of Parkinson's Disease and other neurological disorders. LSVT BIG, a physical therapy program, and LSVT LOUD, a speech therapy program, are available in our outpatient rehabilitation clinic at our University Boulevard location. Research has documented improved motor and speech functioning following these therapies, and we are seeing impressive results with our patients.
This is very promising treatment for Parkinson's patients. Up to this point, the only treatment for this progressive disease has been drug therapy. Most physical therapy programs have had very limited effects. With LSVT, patients are experiencing faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance, and increased trunk rotation with the physical therapy and improved vocal loudness, greater speech intelligibility, and improved facial expression with the speech therapy.
Saad Healthcare is the only local provider offering both of these programs. For more information, call 343-9600.
