Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

ProRehab Offering Treatment Program for Parkinson’s Patient

April 12, 2017



A 4-week program providing occupational and physical therapy services for Parkinson’s disease patients in both home heath and outpatient settings is now available from ProRehab.
The LSVT Big program consists of four sessions per week of intensive, amplitude focused standardized treatment for 4 weeks, and it aims to improve patients’ motor function.
Treatments can be performed standing, sitting, or lying down
The program, developed and researched with funding from the National Institutes of Health, has reportedly been able to help improve balance, increase trunk rotation, improve fine motor control and activities of daily living (ie, bed mobility and dressing), and promote faster walking with bigger steps among participating patients, according to a media release from ProRehab.
“Parkinson’s can be a debilitating and devastating diagnosis, so to be able to help those affected improve motor function and regain a little independence with this life-changing program is very gratifying. The program’s results over the past 25 years have been impressive, and I am very much looking forward to seeing how our patients benefit from this protocol,” says Drew Lappe, OTR/L, director of the LSVT Big Program at ProRehab, in the release.
“We are proud to be offering the LSVT Big protocol to patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease,” states Pat Wempe, CEO of ProRehab.
