Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or another debilitating neurological condition? The exciting research-based approach called LSVT BIG is offered at Dresher PT by Certified Clinician Donna Jones, PT. Research has documented improvements including faster walking with larger steps, improved balance, and increased trunk mobility. See below to read an account from one of our patients who has benefitted from LSVT BIG and for a link to their website and inspiring video about the positive effects of LSVT BIG.

Hi. My name is Hope Katz. I have been a patient at Dresher Physical Therapy on and off for about five years or so. About two months ago, I found out that Donna Jones became certified to teach the LSVT program also known as the BIG program. Donna had been my primary therapist at Dresher PT in the past. I have had Parkinson’s Disease for 19 years now and this program really helps you with balance and everyday situations. It provides you with solutions whether I’d be conquering steps, turning in tight areas, doing buttons or even just walking with packages in my hands. Commitment is the key…the program is 4 weeks, 4 days in a row. It’s the only way it will work!!! I want to thank Donna for her commitment to me and for making this a wonderful experience, and of course all of the staff for your videography and distraction skills. Think BIG is my new motto, it helps in real life situations!”
