What is involved in the PWP?
Every member of our program is fighting back against Parkinson’s disease allowing for an exceptional support system and camaraderie. Research shows that 2.5 hours of forced intensive exercise per week will help combat the symptoms of PD. Make sure those 2.5 hours count by working with a coach experienced in training people with Parkinson’s.
Not Sure where to start?
Each participant is thoroughly evaluated by a physical therapist at GVPT prior to participating in class. This allows the PT/coach to get to know you and your goals personally as well as devise a plan of attack specifically for you! All classes are overseen by the program director, a licensed PT with specialized training in treating Parkinson’s disease.

One on one Physical Therapy appointments are a great way to focus on your specific goals. The PTs involved in the PWP are trained in the LSVT Big protocol which has been proven to reduce falls and improve mobility in people with Parkinson’s. Participants who complete this program can expect a 2 year carry over in their improvements.
