Background: Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), and the role of physical therapy (PT) in treating this population, is scarce in the literature. LBD is considered a differential diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease (PD); therefore, the idea to use PD specific interventions, primarily Lee Silverman Voice Treatment-Big (LSVT BIG), may be considered a suitable intervention. Purpose: To educate the readers about LBD, how it presents, and how PD related interventions can be used as a treatment.
