Lessila Therapy was featured in The Morning Blend on TMJ4 on Wednesday, February 17 with our partner, Azura. We have been working with Azura Assisted Living and Memory Care to provide in-house rehabilitation and therapy services to their residents.
As seniors age, it is crucial to ensure they can continue living independently. Unfortunately, it is common for our loved ones to experience pain, memory loss, and decreased mobility and strength. Whether elders are living with a chronic illness or just experiencing the normal signs of aging, physical therapy is a crucial part of remaining independent and strong.
LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD are intensive programs designed to treat patients with Parkinson's Disease. LSVT BIG treatment is customized to the unique goals of each patient including both gross and fine motor skills. LSVT LOUD treatment is cutomized to the unique communication goals of each person across a range of disease severity and communication impairments. Both programs have documented improved ratings on tests of multiple levels of motor and communicative functions.
There has never been a better time than right now to get physical therapy for your loved ones. As the weather gets colder, it becomes even harder for elderly people to remain active. Lessila Therapy's services help improve motion, prevent falling, manage pain, increase strength and overall improves the elderly's quality of life. Take a look at this pain profile to gauge severity of pain for you or a loved one and contact Lessila Therapy to start your journey to an improved, accessible life!

The Baby Boomer population is aging, and along with this comes increased demand for health care services. By 2030, the number of adults over 65 will rise from 37 million to more than 70 million, almost 20 percent of the total projected population in that year, according to the Institute of Medicine. Along with living longer, Boomers want to maintain their quality of life: to live independently in their own homes, socialize with friends, remain physically healthy and continue to participate in everyday occupations that are meaningful for them.
