Stroke Rehab

Stroke Rehab

Stroke - acute or chronic Strokes affect each patient differently but common symptoms include weakness, coordination problems, abnormal muscle tone, cognitive changes, visual deficits, dizziness/ vertigo and/or balance problems. Physical therapy is a vital part of the recovery process for many stroke survivors and has been proven effective in improving balance and walking ability (Cochrane review, 2014). Increased blood flow to the brain and improved memory have often resulted from aerobic exercise in patients following stroke (Moriya, 2016). Occupational therapy has been shown to improve functional ability in daily activities following a stroke (Legg et al., 2007). Studies also show cognitive rehabilitation provided by occupational therapists is effective in treating focal deficits. Occupational therapists also play an important role in improving upper extremity and visual functions following a stroke (Ebrsr, 2016). At KPT, we have both a physical and an occupational therapist who are Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialists.
