Parkinson's Disease Specialist

At Body In Balance in Linwood, NJ, all of our therapists are Parkinson’s specialist and certified to provide therapy programs that significantly benefit patients.

Parkinson’s Disease is a chronic, progressive neurological disorder affecting movement and coordination. It is associated with tremors, rigidity, slow movement (bradykinesia,) and unstable posture. Parkinson’s Disease significantly impacts functional abilities, limiting daily activities and decreasing quality of life.

A Parkinson’s Disease specialist can help improve function and reduce symptoms.

We offer evidence-based programs designed to help improve physical function and reduce the impact of symptoms.

These Parkinson’s-specific programs focus on improving strength, mobility, balance, and flexibility, speech and voice. High-intensity exercises combine movement with cognitive challenges. Treatment focuses on larger movements to improve motor control. These movements target symptoms like gait freezing and postural instability.

  • LSVT Big – A one-to-one individualized physical therapy structured protocol four times weekly for four weeks.
  • LSVT Loud- The Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT LOUD®) was developed as speech therapy to help people with Parkinson’s Disease recalibrate the perception of the loudness of their voice, so they speak at a normal volume.
  • PWR! Moves – Using the same treatment principles as LSVT Big, PWR! Moves incorporates a more flexible protocol to customize the treatment plan to patient needs and schedules.
