LSVT Patient Success Story

Here is Lyle’s story... Taking his life back though LSVT.

Lyle Miller was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease after a dizzy spell caused a fall and concussion. “I was struggling with tremors, balance, body stiffness, and difficulty sleeping,” he said.

Miller is getting back on his feet through LSVT Big – an effective therapy program for people with Parkinson’s offered through PTS at UnityPoint Health’s Outpatient Therapy department.

“Since I started this program, I’ve had no dizziness or trouble walking. I’ve been able to sleep through the night. I feel so much better than before,” Miller said.

The LSVT Big program includes an emphasis on core movements used in daily life such as walking, stretching, sitting and standing to promote strength and control of movements to improve speed, balance, and quality of life.

Miller attends LSVT Big four times a week and encourages anyone suffering from symptoms or Parkinson’s to try it for themselves. “This program has made a massive improvement on my daily life,” Miller said. “The LSVT Big program has changed my state of mind. I’m staying active so I can continue doing the things I love to do.”
