Nearly 90 percent of patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) have speech problems that start early in the disease process and progressively worsen. These speech problems can make it difficult for patients to be heard or understood by others, affecting their quality of life. Hendricks Regional Health offers LSVT®LOUD, an innovative treatment protocol that has been proven to improve voice and speech in individuals with PD. The program, offered by our speech therapy team, is recommended for virtually any patient with PD.
