Post-Stroke Rehabilitation

What is stroke rehabilitation?

Strokes are one of the leading causes of adult disabilities. Recovering from a stroke can often be difficult and require assistance. Stroke rehabilitation is used to help patients recover after a stroke by helping patients relearn skills and regain control over their lives.

During stroke rehab, a patient will work with a team of professionals to recover and return to their normal life.

Patient Assessment

In order to determine the right treatment plan for each patient, we will comprehensively assess your symptoms. Based on the outcome of your assessment, our team of orthopedic professionals will determine the most effective treatment method for you.

Our goal is to improve your day to day life and help you return to your normal activities. Our professionals are trained and experienced in helping patients regain skills needed for everyday activities. After assessment, our specialists may recommend that patients practice day to day activities in a controlled setting.

What does stroke rehabilitation consist of?

Rehabilitation plans vary between patients. At AVORS, our treatment plans are comprehensive and individualized for each patient. Your rehab plan will depend on which part of the body is affected, as well as the severity of the stroke. There are multiple approaches taken during stroke recovery. Below are some common methods used during stroke rehabilitation:

  • Motor Skill Exercises
  • Brain Stimulation Exercises
  • Mobility Training
  • Technology Assisted Exercises

How long will stroke rehabilitation take?

The length of recovery varies immensely from each patient. Our physical therapy and pain management specialists will assess patients and create a rehabilitation plan based on the severity of their stroke and individual needs.

How soon should I begin rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation after a stroke should begin as soon as possible. The sooner you begin rehabilitation, the more likely you are to recover entirely. Stroke rehabilitation could begin as soon as 24 hours after your stroke while a patient is still in the hospital. Each rehabilitation plan depends greatly on the individual needs of each patient.
