We are happy to announce that Physical Therapist Dr. Asha Koshy and Physical Therapist Assistant Diana Raa are now certified in the LSVT BIG method for Parkinson's Disease treatment, making the Elizabeth clinic the first Physical Therapy clinic in Elizabeth, NJ to offer this revolutionary treatment for Parkinson's Disease.
Based on the basic principle that the human brain can learn and change, LSVT BIG uses high amplitude training exercises aimed at re-calibrating the patient's perception of their own movement. Over the course of 16 intensive, strictly one-on-one Physical Therapy sessions, patients go through a carefully coordinated and monitored exercise program, with many of the exercises done in tandem with the Physical Therapist so that the patient can both feel AND see what it is like to "GO BIG."
We are excited to be the first clinic in all of Elizabeth to offer this treatment option and we look forward helping the Parkinson's Disease patient population with this new tool at our disposal!
