“Exercise versus Therapy for PD: How do I decide?
Program: The role of exercise in the management of Parkinson disease (PD) is becoming widely accepted. Is physical or voice exercise on your own enough to make improvements in body movement and vocal production or is intensive behavioral treatment a better option for making changes? Join LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD Expert Clinicians as they present current literature on exercise in PD and how LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD can help individuals with PD improve motor and voice symptoms. Tips and strategies for maintaining a healthy body and voice exercise habit will also be presented. If you would like a specific question addressed during the webinar, you may submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the broadcast date. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar through either a voice or chat option.
