LSVT BIG is a research-based exercise approach to improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s disease. Named for Mrs. Lee Silverman (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment), a woman living with Parkinson’s, LSVT has been researched and developed for more than 20 years. The program has documented improved ratings on tests of motor function showing improvements on faster walking and bigger steps, balance, trunk rotation, and gross and fine motor functioning.
