A physical therapy session may focus on passive care therapy (which can include ice or heat, electrical stimulation, soft tissue therapy, and therapeutic ultrasound) or active care therapy, such as strength training and stretching, flexibility, and cardiovascular exercises. Our skilled physical therapists at Total Health are well versed in working with clients to determine just the right treatment regimen based on physical condition after an accident or medical procedure, overall physical health, and health and fitness goals.

Our LSVT BIG Program

At Total health, we offer a LSVT BIG program at our Berkeley Heights location, which has been scientifically researched and developed over the past 25 years. This is a physical and occupational approach for people who have Parkinson’s disease. LSVT BIG research has shown improvements in motor skills, such as:

  • Faster walking with bigger steps
  • Improved balance
  • Increased trunk rotation
  • Improvements in activities of daily living such as bed mobility
  • Improved UPDRS motor score

LSTV BIG may be customized, adapted, and progressed in order to meet each unique patients’ goals and needs. Our treatments may consist of:

  1. 16 sessions: 4 consecutive days a week for 4 weeks
  2. Individual 1-hour session
  3. Daily homework practice
  4. Daily carryover exercises

Our physical therapists have been certified in this method and will assess which approach works best for you.
