Lymphedema Therapy
Lymphedema is a chronic swelling in a portion of the body, usually the arms or legs, due to accumulation of lymph fluid within the tissue spaces. It is a side effect associated with lymph node dissection, a common procedure occurring during cancer treatment. Banner Boswell's lymphedema therapy program intervenes to control this chronic condition. Patients receive a comprehensive evaluation, treatment, self-care training and necessary follow-up. Typically this outpatient treatment program lasts four to six weeks.

Parkinson's Therapy
Patients with Parkinson’s disease typically experience vocal and physical symptoms noticed by others due to the lowered volume of speaking voice or smaller arm or leg movements. Treatment of Parkinson’s disease must address these unique outward symptoms with specialized care designed to increase the size and volume of these actions.

LSVT® BIG and LOUD programs are designed for patients learning to live with Parkinson’s disease at all stages and levels of severity by aggressively treating the symptoms of the disease and empowering the patient to think BIG and LOUD. Banner Boswell is proud to provide therapists certified to provide BIG and LOUD treatment to patients with Parkinson’s disease.

LSVT® LOUD therapies help to improve the oral communication skills of individuals with Parkinson’s disease. LSVT® patients become more effective at communicating with others which then greatly increases excitement about communicating after treatment. The LSVT® LOUD program is an intensive voice treatment program that incorporates muscle exercise and exaggeration of volume in voice training to achieve the goal for patients to speak LOUD. It does not train people to shout or yell; rather, the treatment uses loudness training to bring the voice to an improved, more normal vocal level.

LSVT® BIG applies the principles and approach of LSVT® LOUD to improve major motor skills such as walking, moving of the arms and legs, and balance. LSVT® BIG training increases the size of limb and body movement (“bigness”) in people with Parkinson’s disease, which leads to improvements in the quality and speed of movement, balance, and quality of life. The program utilizes many repetitions of movements that are used in daily living with varying complexity and intensity to improve carryover once patients complete the program.

Treatment sessions are one-hour of individual therapy four days a week for four weeks. Homework consists of intensive practice outside the clinical setting two times each day. This type of practice is valuable to optimize learning and application of your better movement into everyday life!
