Parkinson’s Awareness Month

April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Monthn and provides a great opportunity to speak up avout this condition. PD affects millions of people around the globe. However, speaking up is exactly what many Parkinson’s patients struggle with. Nearly 90% of people with Parkinson’s experience speech problems such as a soft or breathy voice, monotone, hoarseness, and articulation issues. Fortunately, a therapy called LSVT LOUD (named after PD patient Lee Silverman) has proven to help many peope with early- to middle-stage Parkinson’s gain back their voice. For those without access to a speech therapist online sessions are available. Visit www.LSVTGlobal.com for more information.
