Parkinson’s should be the last thing to stop you from working and exploring our beautiful small town. Sure, getting around Venice can be taxing, but why miss out on Venice’s parks, beach, restaurants, and diverse wildlife? Why deprive yourself of the gorgeous sunsets over the gulf while sipping cocktails at Sharkey’s, or feel like an Italian strolling along Venice’s wide boulevard past its historic Italianate buildings. It’s all about living to your fullest.
LSVT BIG® is a research-based, maximum range-focused, intensive physical and occupational therapy approach requiring your optimal effort.
LSVT BIG® is a standardized exercise regimen for people with Parkinson’s Disease and other progressive neurological disorders that impair gait, balance, limb function, and daily activities. Because it’s a single intensive treatment focused on reeducating your body through maximum effort to perform normal movements, it’s different from other forms of Parkinson’s therapy.
Did you know that living with Parkinson’s over a lifetime is unique to each person? Neither you nor your doctor can predict which symptoms you’ll get, when you’ll get them, or how severe they’ll be. Parkinson’s symptoms and progression vary among each person.
As Parkinson’s progresses, it’s likely the symptoms you experience may not be the same as other sufferers. Still, researchers have observed that as Parkinson’s progresses, a broad similarity of symptoms is common.
However, life doesn’t end with a Parkinson’s diagnosis! Take Michael J. Fox, for example. He has been living with Parkinson’s for decades and still appears in films and TV. He also founded and oversees his Parkinson’s Foundation. It’s one of the best sources for up-to-date information on the disease. He continues to remain active and engaged.
Working both gross (large muscle groups) and fine motor (hand and wrist muscles) skills, FTMR tailors your LSVT BIG® therapy to your unique goals. We adapt, adjust, or advance our LSVT BIG® treatment plan based on your abilities, your progress, severity, and what current impairments you are experiencing.
FTMR certified LSVT Big® therapists are trained, experienced specialists. We coach you through a series of standardized physical exercises designed to reduce Parkinson’s effects. They enable you to accomplish your day-to-day tasks and participate in the activities you enjoy.
Our LSVT BIG® treatment includes:
Please note: Only an occupational or physical therapist certified in the LSVT BIG® system should deliver the LSVT BIG® therapy.
The occupational therapists at Functional Transformation Mobile Rehab have the training, certification, skills, and years of experience required to administer LSVT BIG® therapy. Our OTs work closely with you to ensure you reach the positive results you expect and want.

We know the difficulties involved in finding a ride when you need to travel for your therapy, especially if you already struggle with Parkinson’s. Plus, limiting unnecessary travel and exposure outside your home reduces your risk of catching infections, an important consideration when you have a weak immune system.
The added benefit of our coming to your home makes it easier for you to stick to your therapy regimen. We confirm you are executing your LSVT BIG® exercises correctly so you can see improved functionality much faster. Additionally, family members and/or your caregiver should participate in your sessions. They can help you put in your maximum effort once you complete your course of treatment.
