Learn how to reduce pain and resume an active life.

Are you or someone you care about dealing with Parkinson’s Disease? At BreakThrough, our therapists are trained in a wide array of orthopedic and neurological skills to handle the various presentations which limit many who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease. For this, we utilize a unique combination of manual skills, education and exercise instruction to help you return to your desired lifestyle much quicker and specifically designed for you

Additionally, several of our physical therapists are LSVT BIG certified to help Parkinson’s patients through various specific techniques to encourage a return to a more normal life.  We can help you through a wide array of tools. Please note that prior to being accepted into our LSVT Program, the patient must obtain a thorough evaluation by one of our therapists. 

We will do our best to help you use your insurance. However, we need you to be committed to the possibility of a cash based program (some insurance companies and plans do not cover this program) and the following protocol:

  • 4 visits per week for a period of 4 weeks
    • These are one on one sessions with your physical therapist
    • Please allow 1 hour for each session
  • Participation in ALL specific exercises provided to you with the frequency and duration as instructed
    • Failure to comply  will be cause for alteration of your specific plan.
