Our comprehensive approach to lymphedema treatment includes manual lymph drainage, compression therapy, exercise therapy, and thorough education and counseling. We customize treatment plans to meet your individual needs, with the goal of helping you regain your quality of life. We utilize our Medi Vision 3D technology to design personalized garments, and our state-of-the-art SOZO digital health platform allows us to measure total body water, including intra and extracellular fluid, as well as analyze tissue composition, metabolic rate, body mass index, phase angle, and weight. Any changes are closely monitored, and treatments are implemented immediately to help prevent the development of lymphedema.

Tailored Parkinson’s Treatment
At Functional Transformation Clinic, we provide our patients in Lakewood Ranch with science-based and clinically-proven therapy programs to combat Parkinson’s disease. Our team of experienced therapists offers a comprehensive range of services, including exercise therapy, balance training, gait refinement, and insightful education and counseling. We are dedicated to empowering our patients to navigate the unique challenges of Parkinson’s disease and work towards slowing down or even reversing their symptoms. To achieve this, we utilize cutting-edge techniques such as LSVT BIG and PWR Moves, which have proven to be highly effective in treating Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s is a neurological condition that affects movement and speech, causing smaller and more challenging movements. Simple tasks like putting on a coat or shoes can take longer for patients. Fortunately, there is a proven therapy called LSVT BIG that can help patients improve their balance, walking, and increase the size of their movements. This therapy has been shown to enhance the patient’s quality of life and even reduce or stop disease symptoms. LSVT therapy involves a series of specific and repetitive exercises that help the brain form new neural connections and adaptations. This allows patients to face daily life with more confidence and security. Another therapy, PWR!, was developed by neuroscientist Dr. Becky Farley, who has over 30 years of experience in Parkinson’s research and neurorehabilitation. PWR! focuses on anti-gravity extension, weight shifting, axial mobility, and transitional movements that help to improve function. While LSVT BIG focuses on large amplitude and high effort with movements that help normalize functional mobility.
Introducing the PWR! Moves – a set of four movements designed to improve posture, balance, and mobility for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other related conditions. The four moves include Up, Rock, Twist, and Step, each with its own unique benefits. Up focuses on improving posture and alignment, which can reduce the risk of falls and help patients take bigger steps. Rock helps with weight shifting, improving turns, rolls, and widening the base of support. Twist focuses on trunk rotation, with the idea that repetition of these movements can reduce rigidity. Step helps to improve balance and movement from one place to another. These Basic 4 movements can be performed on the floor, on all fours, seated, or standing, gradually increasing in difficulty. When done consistently with large, exaggerated movements, they can help PD patients complete tasks that present challenges as the disease progresses, such as rolling over in bed, bending down to tie shoes, or fastening a seatbelt. PWR! Moves can also benefit those with tremor and tic disorders, Dystonia, and spasticity-related diseases, helping to maintain higher levels of function and greater independence. Exercise not only improves the body but also the brain and how it functions. It is especially important for people living with Parkinson’s disease to maintain brain health, which means staying active. The goal of PWR! Moves is to help PD patients live an independent and active life for as long as possible. Due to a loss of dopamine, over time, a PD patient’s brain begins to have difficulty communicating to the body what it’s supposed to do. Exercise boosts dopamine production, which can help slow disease progression.
