Janssen Casey of Harahan was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease five years ago. Lately he noticed his balance was not as good as it used to be and his voice did not seem as strong and loud. His neurologist, Charles Fiore, Jr., M.D. of Culicchia Neurological Clinic referred him to the LSVT Big and Loud program at Touro’s Rehabilitation Unit in New Orleans.
Mr. Casey participated in the four week program, which teaches patients various physical and speech exercises to bolster their strength in these areas. It worked. Mr. Casey reported improvement in his gait, balance and speech. He is a strong believer in the program and is continuing the exercises at home. Watch this short video, which documented his progress.
