Tremendous changes for the better seems hardly adequate to describe the LSVT BIG program at Rutland Regional Medical Center. I would recommend this program to any Parkinson’s Disease patient, or for that matter, anyone with poor posture. As a result of the help I received I’m able to eat better, sleep better, walk short, I feel better about nearly everything I do or feel. 

The program also has helped me to do every day tasks that were difficult to perform. When I stop and think about it, my handwriting improved, I can get out of deep chairs much more easily, I can sit upright at the table while eating and swallow better.

The list of things that are now easier is almost endless. The staff are well trained and excellent at performing their services.”
