(Highland, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland Outpatient Rehabilitation Department now offers Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) BIG and LOUD Programs.

LSVT BIG and LOUD programs provide patients with daily activities to help implement lifelong habits to improve their quality of life. These programs are research-based approaches that improve motor function and vocal loudness/quality for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions.
 
The LSVT BIG program consists of (16) one-hour sessions, led by a LSVT Certified Physical or Occupational Therapist — four days a week for four weeks. The program focuses on high amplitude and repetitive motions performed with maximal effort, which helps produce bigger and more functional movements for daily activities.
 
The LSVT LOUD program is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders who are experiencing difficulties effectively communicating with others. These problems can include soft, mumbled, or monotone speech.

In order to participate in the LSVT BIG and LOUD programs, please obtain a physician order. To schedule an appointment or to learn more, call 618-651-2720.
