Parkinson’s Disease is a neurological disorder which is manifested by tremor (trembling), stiffness, slowness of movement, changes in posture, difficulty with walking and other mobility.
Our Parkinson’s Exercise class ‘PD Proud’ is based on exercises that are part of the LSVT BIG Programme.
LSVT originally stood for ‘Lee Silverman Voice Therapy’, but is now using ‘BIG movements’. The BIG Programme has evolved from the LSVT Loud – voice therapy. LSVT BIG is now in over 50 countries and is a well researched new approach to Parkinson’s Disease.
LSVT BIG is an intensive, amplitude-based exercise programme for the limb motor system. It involves re-education of the sensory/motor system and helps to recalibrate the brain to create larger movements.
New members will need an assessment and a one-month trial before joining.
As we are great supporters of the community, we are proud to offer these classes at a very low cost. All health funds suggested a higher rate than what we are offering. Health rebates may apply.
