Dr. Davis Having Success Treating Patients with Parkinson’s (Sponsored Content)

Today, is the best time for you to take positive steps in moving forward with Parkinson’s Disease. Understanding how Parkinson’s can affect your or a loved one’s body and the importance of treatment “movement and exercise” can result in keeping you ahead of your symptoms.

Conshohocken Physical Therapy has movement specialists here to lead you on a journey where you will relearn how to create normal movements that override the Parkinson’s movement. Visual feedback is often used at the clinic to show patients how they are walking. Patient, Rob G., explains, “I never knew I walked so slumped over, with such tiny steps and decreased speed.”

The LSVT big program is built upon the principles of neuroplasticity, high intensity and high amplitude movements that are practiced in therapy and then learned for the rest of your life. It’s time to regain your movement, your voice, your energy, passion for life and live as person with Parkinson’s Disease not a “Parkinson’s person.” Our goal is to teach you how to manage Parkinson’s in order to further functional independence.  No two thumbprints are exactly the same and neither are the thumbprints of Parkinson’s.  You never realize how strong you are until you have to become strong.

At Conshohocken Physical Therapy, certified LSVT Big specialists provide a unique way of learning the necessary skills to find your inner strength as well as outer strength and get back to enjoying life.  There is nothing more rewarding then watching patients begin therapy with a slow shuffling gait and leave the clinic walking with large steps, increased arm swing, better posture and most important of all … a smile.

Conshohocken Physical Therapy will host a seminar, “Parkinson’s Disease and the Role of Physical Therapy,” on Monday, March 16th at 6:00pm. Email jdavis@conshypt.com or Call 610.828.7595 to reserve your seat.

Meet Dr. Jory Davis, PT, DPT 

joryyogaAs a certified LSVT Big specialist, Jory has always been interested in movement and the expression of movement.  Having a strong background in dance, it seemed natural for her to pursue a career in Physical Therapy that unites movement with biological sciences.  After seeing the remarkable results of the movement based program for Parkinson’s, she decided to become certified as a LSVT Big trainer.

Jory explains, “It is powerful to be able to affect the quality of life in patients with Parkinson’s disease.  It is rewarding when I am able to provide the skills to patients enabling them to change their movement, their confidence and outlook toward life.”
