LSVT Big Certified - LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson disease (PD) to use their body more normally. People living with PD or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. They may have trouble with getting around, getting dressed and with other activities of daily living. LSVT BIG effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether “small motor” tasks like buttoning a shirt or “large motor” tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. The treatment improves walking, self-care and other tasks by helping people “recalibrate” how they perceive their movements with what others actually see. It also teaches them how and when to apply extra effort to produce bigger motions – more like the movements of everyone around them.

Because LSVT BIG treatment is customized to each person's specific needs and goals, it can help regardless of the stage or severity of your condition. That said, the treatment may be most effective in early or middle stages of your condition, when you can both improve function and potentially slow further symptom progression. Beginning your work with LSVT BIG before you've noticed significant problems with balance, mobility or posture will often lead to the best results, but it's never too late to start. LSVT BIG can produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable physical difficulties.


Originally from Phoenix, AZ, Amanda Sandbloom, DPT was inspired to start a career in physical therapy after her many years competing in athletics. She grew up playing a variety of sports and had her fair share of injuries that challenged her a long the way.

Her experiences pull from working in a variety of medical settings including outpatient, inpatient, inpatient rehab, and home health. She also has extended training in vestibular rehab (an exercise-based program that assists to improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness), and has taken special interests in neuro and sports therapy. With applications in a number of neurological conditions, one of her goals is to become certified in PWR (Parkinson's Wellness Recovery) and work with patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Prior to CFVH, Sandbloom worked at Fallon County Medical Complex in Baker, MT which was her first exposure to the state of Montana. Within the first week of working for CFVH as a Physical Therapy traveler, she got a good sense of the comradery and support throughout the department and facility. This made CFVH an ideal place to establish a career and make the permanent move to Montana. Not only was CFVH in a beautiful location that would fit all of her outdoor interests, she really fell in love with the community.

Her interests outside of work include hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and everything outdoors. She also enjoys reading and is an avid movie-goer. To really relax, she is not a stranger to binge watching a few of her favorite TV shows on Netflix and Hulu.
