Post Stroke Care
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die causing paralysis or loss of muscle movement. You may become paralyzed on one side of your body, or lose control of certain muscles, such as those on one side of your face or one arm. Physical therapy may help you return to activities affected by paralysis, such as walking, eating and dressing. There are many risk factors that we must be aware of and part of our strategy is to inform and educate our patients on minimizing risk factors. Our team approach will make sure you stay informed throughout the process, receive comfortable care in an outpatient setting and help you restore function.
What you can expect from our process:
