Clinicians will learn how LSVT BIG is an intensive, amplitude focused, exercise based treatment protocol that is customized to the unique goals of each patient including both gross and fine motor skills. In addition, clinicians will learn how to adapt or progress the program in order to meet each patient’s needs across a range of disease severity and presenting impairments.
The fundamentals underlying key treatment elements of LSVT BIG and efficacy data supporting treatment outcomes will be reviewed, along with a basic review of Parkinson disease and activity dependent neuroplasticity.
