What is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. It often begins with a tremor in one hand. 

As the disease progresses, the tremors spread to other parts of the body and may become so severe that they interfere with daily activities such as eating and dressing. Other symptoms include rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with balance.

Parkinson’s disease is caused by the loss of nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical messenger that helps to control movement.

There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there are treatments that can help to improve symptoms.

Functional Transformational Mobile Rehab Offers LSVT BIG®Therapy

Functional Transformational Mobile Rehab (FTMR) is a unique outpatient rehabilitation service provider. We offer LSVT BIG®, which is an evidence-based therapy for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, to patients in Port Charlotte and the surrounding areas.

LSVT BIG® was developed by scientists at the University of Southern California (USC). It is a movement therapy that uses exaggerated, task-specific exercises to retrain the brain to improve movement.

The therapy is conducted by certified LSVT BIG® therapists who have received special training.

During LSVT BIG®, patients work one-on-one with a therapist for four weeks, four days per week, for a total of 16 sessions. The therapist will create a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s individual needs.

LSVT BIG® has been proven to be effective in improving the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, including tremor, slowness of movement, and difficulty with balance. The therapy has also been shown to improve quality of life and independence.

We also offer PWR!Moves for Parkinson’s.

PWR!Moves are designed to target skills known to deteriorate in Parkinson’s patients and which lead to loss of mobility and function. The moves are made to be progressively more challenging and are used differently to target each person’s unique symptoms. 

PWR!Moves will help you improve symptoms and rebuild lost function.
