    What is lymphedema?

    • A common, chronic, debilitating condition in which excess fluid called lymph collects in tissues and causes swelling (edema) in them
    • Impaired flow of the lymphatic system
    • Symptoms of lymphedema include swelling in one or more extremities. The swelling may range from mild to severe and disfiguring
  • Complex lymphedema therapy

    Complex lymphedema therapy consists of the following lymphedema treatments:

    • Lymphatic drainage
    • Compression bandaging
    • Skin care
    • Patient-specific lymphedema physical therapy exercises
    • Exercise for lymphedema is also emerging as an important component of lymphedema treatment
  • LSVT

    The LSVT Program provides speech, physical and occupational therapy for individuals with Parkinson’s disease.

    LSVT BIG is delivered by a physical or occupational therapist in 16 sessions over a single month (four individual 60-minute sessions per week). The protocol was developed to address the unique movement impairments for people with Parkinson's disease. The protocol is both intensive and complex, with multiple repetitions of core movements that are used in daily living. This type of practice is necessary to optimize learning and carryover of your better movement into everyday life! Start exercising NOW—as soon as possible.

    LSVT LOUD is delivered by a speech-language therapist and is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions. The treatment improves vocal loudness by stimulating the muscles of the voice box (larynx) and speech mechanism through a systematic hierarchy of exercises. Focused on a single goal “speak LOUD!”—the treatment improves respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory function to maximize speech intelligibility. The treatment does not train people for shouting or yelling; rather, LSVT LOUD uses loudness training to bring the voice to an improved, healthy vocal loudness with no strain.
