Empowering Movement: Parkinson's Therapy

we understand the challenges that individuals with Parkinson’s disease face in managing their symptoms and maintaining their quality of life. Our specialized Parkinson’s therapy program is designed to provide comprehensive care and support to help patients manage their symptoms, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being.

Our Approach to Parkinson's Therapy in NY

We tailor our treatment plans to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient, empowering them to take an active role in their care.

Parkinson's Therapy

Key Components of Our Parkinson's Therapy Program

Movement Training: We utilize evidence-based techniques such as LSVT BIG® (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) and PWR!® (Parkinson Wellness Recovery) to improve movement quality, amplitude, and speed. Through repetitive and high-intensity exercises, we help patients overcome bradykinesia, rigidity, and balance challenges.

Gait and Balance Training: We focus on improving walking ability and balance control to reduce the risk of falls and enhance mobility. Our therapists incorporate exercises to strengthen core muscles, improve posture, and promote safe and efficient walking patterns.

Fall Prevention Strategies: We educate patients and their caregivers on strategies to minimize the risk of falls and injuries at home and in the community. This includes environmental modifications, assistive devices, and techniques for safe transfers and mobility.

Speech and Swallowing Therapy: For patients experiencing speech and swallowing difficulties, we provide specialized therapy to improve communication and swallowing function. We offer exercises, strategies, and techniques to enhance vocal projection, articulation, and oral motor coordination.

Cognitive Rehabilitation: We incorporate cognitive exercises and activities to address cognitive impairments commonly associated with Parkinson’s disease, such as attention, memory, and executive function deficits. Our goal is to optimize cognitive function and support overall brain health.

Community Integration: We work with patients to identify meaningful activities and interests and incorporate them into therapy sessions. This may include practicing functional tasks such as shopping, cooking, or participating in leisure activities to promote engagement and socialization.
