Background. Novel rehabilitation strategies have demonstrated potential benefits for motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD). Objective. To compare the effects of Lee Silverman Voice Therapy BIG (LSVT BIG therapy) versus a general exercise program (combined treadmill plus seated trunk and limb exercises) on motor and non-motor symptoms of PD. Methods. Eleven patients with early-mid stage PD participated in the prospective, double-blinded, randomized clinical trial. Both groups received 16 one-hour supervised training sessions over 4 weeks...

LSVT-BIG is an exercise for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) comprising of 16 1-h sessions within 4 weeks. LSVT-BIG was compared with a 2-week short protocol (AOT-SP) consisting of 10 sessions with identical exercises in 42 patients with PD. UPDRS-III-score was reduced by -6.6 in LSVT-BIG and -5.7 in AOT-SP at follow-up after 16 weeks (p < 0.001). Measures of motor performance were equally improved by LSVT-BIG and AOT-SP but high-intensity LSVT-BIG was more effective to obtain patient-perceived benefit...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Lee Silverman Voice Treatment Big (LSVT BIG) is characterized by intensive exercising of high-amplitude movements to overcome bradykinesia and hypokinesia in patients with Parkinson disease (PD). The aim of the present case series was to explore possible beneficial effects of LSVT BIG training on gait, balance, bed mobility, and dexterity. CASE DESCRIPTION: Three patients with mild to moderate PD (all male; aged 52, 54, and 70 years; Hoehn & Yahr stages I-III) completed a 4-week LSVT BIG training program (16 individual 1-hour sessions) and an intensive home training program in accordance with the LSVT BIG protocol...

Recent advances in neuroscience have suggested that exercise-based behavioral treatments may improve function and possibly slow progression of motor symptoms in individuals with Parkinson disease (PD). The LSVT (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) Programs for individuals with PD have been developed and researched over the past 20 years beginning with a focus on the speech motor system (LSVT LOUD) and more recently have been extended to address limb motor systems (LSVT BIG). The unique aspects of the LSVT Programs include the combination of (a) an exclusive target on increasing amplitude (loudness in the speech motor system; bigger movements in the limb motor system), (b) a focus on sensory recalibration to help patients recognize that movements with increased amplitude are within normal limits, even if they feel "too loud" or "too big," and (c) training self-cueing and attention to action to facilitate long-term maintenance of treatment outcomes...

Physiotherapy is widely used in Parkinson's disease (PD), but there are few controlled studies comparing active interventions. Recently, a technique named "LSVT®BIG" has been introduced. LSVT®BIG is derived from the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment and focuses on intensive exercising of high-amplitude movements. In the present comparative study, 60 patients with mild to moderate PD were randomly assigned to receive either one-to-one training (BIG), group training of Nordic Walking (WALK), or domestic nonsupervised exercises (HOME)...

We have used the phenomenon that speed increases with movement amplitude as a rehabilitation strategy. We tested the hypothesis that the generalized training of amplitude in the limb motor system may reduce bradykinesia and hypokinesia in the upper and lower limbs in subjects with Parkinson's disease (PD) across disease severity (Stage I, n=6; Stage II, n=7; Stage III, n=5). While studies have separately examined the relationship of amplitude to speed in reaching and gait, the same study has not reported the relationship for both limb systems...
