LSVT BIG program fights Parkinson's Disease - January 29, 2014

BIG Program Fights Parkinson's

Thanks to The Des Moines Register and Estela Villanueva-Whitman for sharing a story of two friends who completed our LSVT BIG program earlier this winter. 


“I have much better movement. I can walk fast enough that my husband says ‘she goes off and leaves me,’ where before I was lagging behind all the time,” said Ramseyer, 65.


On With Life's Outpatient program began offering LSVT BIG for the first time in November 2013. Through the intensive four-week therapy program, On With Life’s LSVT BIG-certified therapists Gail McGaughy, MPT, and Jess Borysiewicz, OTR/L, teach those fighting Parkinson's Disease how to avoid inactivity and keep movements alive during everyday activities, while improving the quality of life.
