Specialty Programs

Shirkey Premier Therapy offers the following specialty programs on an in- or outpatient basis to help improve your quality of life and independence.

  • Certified Lymphedema Program for treatment of painful swelling in arms and/or legs
  • VitalStim® therapy: Effective, non-invasive treatment to improve swallowing
  • Certified LSVT BIG and LOUD® Parkinson’s program to regain balance, movement and vocal strength
  • Rehab to Home: Therapies to help you get back to your routine and independent life

Certified Lymphedema Program

The lymph system helps filter and drain fluid typically from our arms and legs. When the lymph system is damaged, painful swelling can occur. Left untreated, lymphedema also reduces oxygen, which can interfere with wound healing or increase infections. Our certified therapists utilize specialized massage, multi-layered compression bandages, exercise and elevation in their treatment.

VitalStim® Therapy

An effective and non-invasive procedure, VitalStim® treats adults or children who have difficulty swallowing. Safe, external electrical stimulation in the neck causes muscles to contract. Combined with swallowing exercises, the treatment retrains the brain and strengthens the throat. VitalStim® not only offers a high success rate, but the results are typically long lasting.

LSVT BIG and LOUD® Parkinson’s Program

Individuals make big improvements in their balance and walking through the LSVT BIG® program. Through amplified movements and exercise, patients learn how normal movements should feel. LSVT LOUD® program increases the loudness, intonation and clarity of speech in patients.
