HSHS Rehabilitation and Wellness, Effingham, IL, operates a specialized team that treats patients with Parkinson’s disease. The physical therapy and speech therapy team has obtained a specialized treatment program for Parkinson’s disease. Seven members of the HSHS Rehabilitation staff have completed specialized and individualized training for LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD treatments. Extensive training was accomplished through the Parkinson’s Foundation. With this specialized education, the team is better equipped to serve the patients and their caregivers of this community. Donations from this “Moving Day” event will be donated to the Parkinson's foundation. The donations from patients and their families will aid the Parkinson’s Foundation with further resources, education, and research for treatments of this disease.
