Sarasota, Florida Parkinson’s Therapy Services

Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab - providing mobile, personal therapy for LSVT BIG® for Parkinson's patients in Sarasota, Florida.

With all the fantastic experiences Sarasota has at your fingertips, Parkinson’s should be the last thing stopping you from working and playing in our wonderful city. Sure, getting around can be challenging, but why miss out on Sarasota’s abundant activities. It’s all about living to your fullest.

Are you aware that living with Parkinson’s over a lifetime is unique to each person? Because symptoms and progression vary from person to person, neither you nor your doctor can predict which symptoms you’ll contract, when you’ll get them, or how severe they’ll be. 

While there is a broad similarity observed among people with Parkinson’s as the disease progresses, there’s no guarantee you will experience what you see in others. Even with progression, it doesn’t mean you can’t make a difference or positive impact in society. Look at Michael J. Fox, not only has he been living with Parkinson’s to the fullest for decades, he also runs his Parkinson’s Foundation. 

LSVT BIG® is a research-based, amplitude-focused, intensive physical and occupational therapy approach requiring your maximum effort. 

LSVT BIG® is a standardized exercise treatment method for people with Parkinson’s Disease and other progressive neurological disorders that impair limb function, gait, balance, and daily activities. Because it’s a single intensive treatment focused on reeducating you to do normal movements through maximum effort, it differs from other forms of therapy. 

FTMR adjusts and customizes your LSVT BIG® therapy for your unique goals, which encompasses both gross and fine motor skills. We adapt or advance our LSVT BIG® treatment plan to meet your needs depending on the progress and severity of your disease and what impairments you are currently experiencing.

FTMR certified LSVT Big® therapists are trained, experienced specialists who coach you through a series of standardized physical exercises to lessen the effects of Parkinson’s, enabling you to continue doing your day-to-day tasks and all the activities you enjoy.

Our LSVT BIG® treatment includes:

  1. 16 sessions, divided into 4 consecutive days per week for 4 weeks.
  2. One-on-one sessions with or without a family member or caregiver present that last about an hour.
  3. Daily homework exercises for you to practice in between sessions.
  4. Assistance with daily carryover exercises so you stay on your health-goal targets. 

 

Resulting in:

  • Faster Walking and Bigger Steps.
  • Improved Balance.
  • Increased Torso Rotation.
  • Improvements in Activities of Daily Living, such as bed and bathroom Mobility.
  • Improved UPDRS (Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale) Motor Score. 


LSVT BIG® treatment should only be delivered by an occupational or physical therapist who is certified in the LSVT BIG® system. The occupational therapists at Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab have the training, certification, and years of experience required to administer LSVT BIG® treatment. Our therapists work closely with you to ensure your needs are met and the positive results you expect remain attainable.

We Come to You

FTMR has all of the benefits of a traditional outpatient therapy clinic without the difficulty of traveling to the clinic. Our team comes to you! 

Our certified, experienced LSVT BIG® FTMR therapists are flexible and we never over-schedule. We give you customized care and personalized support. 

You know how difficult it can be to find a ride when you need to travel for your therapy, especially if you already struggle with limited mobility. Plus, limiting unnecessary travel or exposure to the outside world lowers your risk of picking up infections, which is important when your immune system is compromised. 

By coming to your home, we make it easier for you to stick to your treatment regimen, ensuring you are executing your LSVT BIG® exercises optimally and correctly, so you can see improved functionality that much faster. Additionally, by participating in your sessions your family members or caregiver can help you put in your maximum effort once your course of sessions is completed.
