Therapy Services

Aquatic Therapy

A form of rehabilitation that uses a comfortable, low-impact and pain-free exercise environment to help patients regain strength, flexibility, endurance and mobility.

  • Buoyancy allows for easier body movements
  • Natural resistance of water increases muscle strength
  • Pressure of the water on the body increases the dynamics of blood pressure, which helps to strengthen the heart and challenge the lungs
  • Warm water helps relax tense and constricted muscles, soothes aching joints and allows a wider range of motion

Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Arthritis
  • Spine-related conditions
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Bursitis
  • Postsurgical pain
  • Joint scopes and replacements
  • Joint pain as a result of obesity

BIG® & LOUD® Therapy

 BIG & LOUD therapy is a type of therapy developed specifically for patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

  • The BIG therapy system, which was developed using many of the same principles as LOUD, gives patients increased mobility, balance and range of movement with their bodies and limbs
  • The LOUD program includes an intensive month-long therapy course that improves vocal intensity, quality and variation through a series of repetitive exercises that stimulate the muscles of the larynx and improve breathing. At the same time, patients are taught to recognize when and how to speak louder to facilitate understanding
  • Both BIG and LOUD therapies require patients to attend four one-hour classes a week for one month, working directly with an individual therapist who provides one-on-one coaching and assistance

For more information on Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s BIG and LOUD therapy, call Maureen Lall, Neuroscience & Spine Center nurse navigator at 281.274.7979.

Our staff is passionate about providing a service that will continually benefit the patient after his or her therapy sessions have concluded. Our therapists educate their patients on exercises that they can perform at home and between sessions to help speed up and solidify the treatment process.
