Physical Therapy After Stroke at Rock Run Physical Therapy

Strokes are, unfortunately, a leading cause of long-term adult disability. No one is ever prepared for the devastating effects of a stroke as they can occur without warning. Ten percent of stroke survivors will reach a full recovery, while forty percent experience moderate to severe impairments. No matter the level of lasting damage, all patients can improve with physical therapy. Physical rehabilitation in Utah for stroke patients usually begins within 24 hours after the stroke. Your attending emergency professional will decide when it is appropriate to begin stroke rehabilitation.

Type of Treatment for Stroke Physical Therapy

Different types of therapy will be employed depending on the severity of a stroke. Almost all stroke patients require physical therapy and others may need additional occupational and speech therapies. If you or a loved one is in need of physical rehabilitation in Utah for a recent stroke, the professional physical therapists of Rock Run are here to help. Our team of therapists is experienced in stroke recovery and we can develop a customized rehabilitation plan for you or a loved one.

It is typical for strokes to cause paralysis on one side of the body or a breakdown in the signaling between brain and muscles. The physical therapists of Rock Run work directly with patients to help tone and strengthen the affected muscles. Stroke rehabilitation is a process of relearning basic motor activities like walking, sitting, standing, lying down, and balance. Depending on the severity of the resulting disability, various types of therapy may be necessary. The best therapy for regaining motor skills, however, is basic exercises that can be performed both in the Rock Run physical therapy office and repeated at home. Patients that begin their rehabilitation program right away have a better prognosis and quicker recovery.
