Rehabilitation can assist a person with Parkinson’s Disease maintain maximum function in his/her day to day routines, and enable them to live meaningful lives.
Lorien Mays Chapel offers both Inpatient and Outpatient PD Therapy:
LSVT® BIG is an exercise treatment program for people with Parkinson's disease (PD). It is based on the principle that the brain can learn and change (neuroplasticity). It has been formulated from an existing program to help with speech for people with PD called the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT).
LSVT LOUD® is an effective speech treatment for individuals with Parkinson disease (PD) and other neurological conditions. ... LSVT LOUD improves vocal loudness by stimulating the muscles of the voice box (larynx) and speech mechanism through a systematic hierarchy of exercises.
PWR!4Life™ is not a static or singular approach. It is a comprehensive neuroplasticity-principled program that integrates the latest research on Parkinson disease and Rehabilitation, Exercise, and Wellness. Therefore, it is always being updated. This type of research-based integrated exercise and wellness programming is necessary to counteract the inactivity, motor deterioration, and symptoms of PD.
We are excited to announce the launch of a ROCK STEADY program also at our Lorien Mays Chapel location, sponsored by Maryland Association for Parkinson Support (MAPS)! This program was developed to give people with Parkinson's disease hope, by improving their quality of life through non-contact boxing. Their mission is now part of our mission: "empower people with Parkinson's disease to fight back."
