Progressive Physical Therapy prides itself on customizing rehabilitation programs for each and every patient to help them achieve their goals whether they are a student-athlete, a weekend warrior, or an aging senior. Treating Parkinson’s Disease patients is no different because our goal is always to help our patients live their best life possible and keep them moving to enjoy life to the fullest.
We base our Parkinson’s Disease treatment on the LSVT BIG program, but also incorporate traditional physical therapy modalities and treatments. We combine evidence-based science with our extensive clinical experience, plus a few tricks in our tool bag, to ensure our patients get the best possible care. A Parkinson’s diagnosis is challenging enough. That is why we go beyond BIG to ensure we address any other issue that may be causing problems with movement. Whether it’s the normal effects of an aging body, a joint replacement surgery, or a nagging injury, we will enhance our treatment plan to include appropriate exercises, stretches, balance, and flexibility training to ensure the best quality of life possible for our patients.
