Logan Health Rehabilitation is the only facility in the Flathead Valley that offers occupational, physical and speech therapies at one location using the LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD programs that work together in a multi-faceted, intensive program developed specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
Therapy Programs and Tools
Speech and Swallowing
LSVT LOUD is an intensive speech therapy program to help individuals with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions. Using exercises that strengthen the muscles of the voice box, our speech therapists help individuals make improvements in speaking loudly and clearly.
Mobility and Movement
Based on the principles of LSVT LOUD, LSVT BIG is a physical and occupation therapy program that helps to improve limb and body movement, speed and balance for people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions.
The Biodex Balance System SD is a tool our therapists use to help individuals improve balance, increase agility and develop muscle tone. It administers tests to assess balance and aids therapists in determining the appropriate treatment for each individual, whether they are experiencing a vestibular or neurological disorder or are at risk of falling.
Our physical and occupational therapists incorporate Parkinson Wellness Recovery to help individuals improve mobility and safety. Parkinson Wellness Recovery takes advantage of the techniques of neuroplasticity, the ways in which the brain creates new neural pathways to compensate and adapt.
