Recent scientific advances in animal models of Parkinson disease suggest exercise is a legitimate disease-modifying therapeutic option that contributes to behavioral recovery and neurochemical sparing. These data challenge current rehabilitative assumptions and emphasize the need for neuroplasticity-principled exercise-based approaches to challenge the impaired system. We suggest one novel solution-–the intensive practice of amplitude-–a global motor control parameter. Training a single focus… Expand
Treatment Options for Motor and Non-Motor Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
The best strategy for treating PD is to hope to slow disorder progression and strive to achieve stability with neuroprotection, an integrative medicine and health strategy that highlights five treatment options for people with Parkinson’s. Expand
The Beneficial Role of Intensive Exercise on Parkinson Disease Progression
TLDR
The authors outline the relation between intensive exercises and neuroplastic activity on animal models of Parkinson disease and discuss the clinical results of different intensive strategies on motor performance and disease progression in patients with Parkinson disease. Expand
Neurologic Music Therapy Training for Mobility and Stability Rehabilitation with Parkinson’s Disease – A Pilot Study
TLDR
The research showed that the combination of the three NMT sensorimotor techniques can be used to improve gait and other rhythmical activities in PD rehabilitation and suggest a new compensatory strategy for movement and postural control through the use of the auditory system. Expand
Erratum to: Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson’s disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol
TLDR
Moves of motor performance were equally improved by LSVT-BIG and AOT-SP but high-intensity LSVT -BIG was more effective to obtain patient-perceived benefit. Expand
Neurorehabilitation for Other Neurologic Disorders
ABSTRACT Rehabilitation treatment and the interdisciplinary approach to care may improve the function of those with progressive neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson disease,Expand
Therapeutic interventions in parkinsonism: Corticobasal degeneration.
TLDR
Symptomatic treatment, non-pharmacological strategies and palliative care are useful integrating components of the multidisciplinary therapeutic approach for patients with CBD. Expand
Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson’s disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol
LSVT-BIG is an exercise for patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) comprising of 16 1-h sessions within 4 weeks. LSVT-BIG was compared with a 2-week short protocol (AOT-SP) consisting of 10 sessionsExpand
Amplitude-oriented exercise in Parkinson's disease: a randomized study comparing LSVT-BIG and a short training protocol
TLDR
Mea- sures of motor performance were equally improved by LSVT-BIG and AOT-SP but high-intensity LSVT -BIG was more effective to obtain patient-perceived benefit. Expand
Effect of physical therapy training on gait initiation in patients with moderate parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is demonstrated that physical therapy treatment would be beneficial for patients with PD experiencing gait initiation problems, using the TrainingBIG™ technique and task-specific concepts. Expand
Feasibility of using a large amplitude movement therapy to improve ambulatory function in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Results for this pilot study suggested that the large amplitude movement therapy was feasible for children with CP and there is a need for a larger scale study to determine if the protocol can be effective at an appropriate clinical dose. Expand

TLDR
The majority of patients in both groups showed improvements in gait, tremor, grip strength and motor coordination on tasks requiring fine control, and this suggests that exercise is a useful adjunct to pharmacologic therapy. Expand
