PARKINSON'S LSVT BIG
Parkinson’s Disease (PD) can be an overwhelming diagnosis. Carlson ProCare is committed to providing an evidence-based approach to helping you that works in conjunction with medical management.
Carlson ProCare is proud to offer LSVT BIG with two certified therapists.
What is LSVT BIG?
Developed and researched over the past 25 years, LSVT BIG is based on the principles of the LSVT LOUD program. LSVT BIG is a globally recognized treatment protocol for PD and other similar neurological disorders. Research has shown that participation in the LSVT BIG program enables individuals to optimize mobility and activities of daily living, such as walking, getting dressed, changing positions, balancing, moving around in bed, transferring from lying down to sitting to standing, and self-care skills.
LSVT BIG is a standardized program, but it is also customized to each individual’s goals and needs. LSVT BIG is proven effective regardless of the stage of the disease or severity of the symptoms. This specialized treatment targets the amplitude of movements and strategies for recalibrating how a patient perceives their movement. Ultimately, patients can move with more ease, have less freezing, and restore functional movements. Patients receive one-to-one care from a certified LSVT BIG therapist for the duration of their treatment. In addition, patients are instructed in a home exercise program to sustain their new improvements.
Our therapists, with their years of experience, understand the unique issues that face patients (and their caregivers) with PD. While some patients may need extensive assistance others are more mobile. Our therapists will carefully evaluate you and create a customized physical therapy program that works for you.

I love a good thrill and live a fairly active lifestyle, enjoying mountain biking, snowboarding, and other outdoor sports. I get injured from time to time. Fortunately, any time I do get injured I go see my physician at CARLSON PROCARE, they are the best!! Provides great care and insights that help get me on my feet in no time!

Great therapists, staff, and facility! They work together as a team so well and create a welcoming and comfortable environment. They make the entire process simple and uncomplicated. I 100% recommend this Physical Therapy Team.
CARLSON PROCARE helped me from the day I was injured, all the way until I was fully recovered. Not only are they great at what they do, but they are also a caring group of people. I fully recommend them for anyone in need of physical therapy.
