I have struggled over the years finding the right treatment strategies to help my clients that have Parkinson's Disease optimize function, and I love that LSVT BIG® is determined to help OT practitioners do this through evidence based intervention.
The team from LSVT BIG has joined me on the Seniors Flourish podcast discussing the evidence, how their program works, answering your questions about the certification, and (my favorite!) sharing some amazing stories about how LSVT BIG has changed the lives of their clients!
They also shared 5 “BIG” Things We Learned About Treating Patients with Parkinson’s that is super helpful and dig into the research to help our patients accomplish their goals including:
- Never Underestimate Your Client's Potential
- Don't Be Afraid to Push Your Patient
- Keep It Simple
- Functional Carryover is Key
- To Restore or Compensate? That is the Question!
Dig into how to integrate these principles into your practice, check it out here.
