The LSVT BIG program is an intensive, amplitude focused physical therapy program that can be adapted to all stages of Parkison’s Disease. This program focuses on function and helps to improve walking speed, promotes bigger steps, improves balance, improves trunk rotation, and improves function with activities of daily living such as bed mobility and dressing. This program is individualized to the needs of each patient. Treatment consists of 16 sessions with 4 treatment sessions a week for 4 weeks.
I had the pleasure of being offered a position as a facility director at the same clinic that I had once started as an aide, and 12 years later, I’m just as pleased with the company and their ideals of quality vs. quantity care. Phoenix also provides a generous yearly continuing education package as they are focused on all therapists advancing their skills in the field, and maintaining high standards for their employees. I would highly recommend working for Phoenix to any therapist, new or experienced.
