I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease fifteen years ago. I had Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in June 2010. I have been able to perform activities of daily living independently but continued to have problems with balance and difficulty with speech. I sounded like I was talking with a mouth full of marbles. My doctor referred me to Touro’s LSVT program. After completing the program I went from needing a wheelchair to independent walking. My speech has become louder and more easily understood. I learned a lot from the staff-they were professional, supportive and encouraging.
