Intensive Exercise Therapy

Texoma Medical Center offers advanced, research-based approaches to helping improve the motor functioning of patients with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions. Two interventions used are the LSVT BIG program and the SPEAK OUT!® Therapy Program.

What is LSVT BIG?

LSVT® BIG is an intensive treatment that incorporates exercise to promote strength and motor learning. Patients work with an LSVT-certified occupational or physical therapist, learning how to avoid inactivity and improving:

  • Walking speed and size of steps
  • Balance
  • Torso rotation
  • Performance of activities of daily living
  • Confidence and quality of life

How Does LSVT Work?

A typical treatment course includes 16 sessions over a month. Each week, patients participate in four individual 60-minute sessions consecutively. Patients are given exercises to do on days when no session is scheduled, as well as daily homework practice.
