Movement Disorders Rehabilitation

Patients with movement disorders often need rehabilitation to help improve their balance, gait or walking, posture, swallowing and cognition.  At Atlantic Rehabilitation, we provide services to alleviate the side effects of conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, vestibular disorders, multiple sclerosisamyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and neurodegenerative diseases, among others.

State-of-the-art treatment methods and equipment used in our program include:

Lee Silverman Voice Therapy (LSVT®) LOUD – speech therapy that improves vocal loudness, speech intelligibility and facial expression

LSVT BIG – uses principles of physical and occupational therapy to improve major motor skills, such as walking, limb movement and balance

AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill® – allows patients to exercise at reduced body weight, helping them regain a more productive walking pattern and increase activity endurance

Lite Gait® – a partial weight-bearing device that helps patients who are not strong enough to stand on their own practice walking

SMART EquiTest® Balance Master – simulates various visual and surface conditions to assess balance and identify problem areas with a patient’s vision or somatosensory and vestibular systems

Our team consists of referring neurologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, audiologists, integrative medicine practitioners, social workers, rehabilitation nurses and other medical professionals as necessary. Many of the therapists are certified in both LSVT LOUD and LSVT BIG.
