WESTMINSTER, Maryland — Therafit Rehab, one of the Mid-Atlantic’s premier providers of physical, occupational and speech therapy for people with neurological conditions or traumatic injuries, announced it will host free movement consultations for people with Parkinson’s disease at its locations in Maryland and New Jersey through Sept. 11. Individuals that have Parkinson’s and their caregivers are welcome to register for a consult.
The free screen, conducted by one of Therafit Rehab’s certified physical or occupational therapists, will last about 15 minutes and will include an interview and one or more assessment exercises for balance, gait, flexibility, and the like.
“Living with Parkinson’s disease can be challenging, but many of its symptoms can be mitigated with appropriate therapy,” Justin Gilligan, vice president of Therafit Rehab, said. “The first steps are listening to a Parkinson’s patient’s concerns and goals and evaluating current status. Then our therapists, many of whom are certified in the LSVT Big and Loud methodology for treating Parkinson’s patients, can help restore lost function and get them back to doing what they enjoy. These free consultations will guide patients’ current status and treatment possibilities.”
The free consults will take place at Therafit Rehab’s locations below. Spouses and loved ones are welcome.
