Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke affects approximately 795,000 people each year in the U.S. and is one of the leading causes of long-term adult disability. The severity of a stroke depends upon the location in the brain where the stroke occurs (lack of blood flow to certain areas of the brain.)

People who need rehabilitation after suffering a stroke require specialized treatment to restore functional loss. Physical Therapy helps by creating new neural pathways in the brain. When participating in physical therapy, patients perform activities such as balance, coordintation and strengthening exercises that help “rewire” the brain to allow movement/function in a body part that has been affected by the stroke. This is known as neuroplasticity – where the brain changes due to relearning and occurs on a variety of levels.
