Stroke Rehabilitation

A stroke occurs when the flow of fresh, oxygen-filled blood from the heart and lungs to the brain is interrupted by a blockage or rupture. This cuts off the brain from vital energy and causes nerve cells to die, resulting in a loss of function in the areas controlled by the affected area of the brain. Physical rehabilitation following a stroke helps people relearn how to walk, sit, stand, lie down, change positions and more.

Research has proven early intervention is key to achieving meaningful outcomes after experiencing a stroke. Physical, occupational and speech therapies following a stroke helps patients relearn how to walk, speak and participate in activities they enjoy.
