Rehabilitation After Stroke

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.

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.

A stroke can be a frightening event, but it doesn’t have to be life changing. With professional physical therapy care, you or your loved one can achieve a quick recovery. The long term goal of stroke rehabilitation is to allow patients to gain as much independence over their life as possible. Return to daily activity can be achieved with physical therapy assistance from Rock Run. To learn more about our stroke physical rehabilitation program, feel free to contact our office today.

This was my very first injury in my life. As scary and unsure about how things can turn out, it was nice to have Brenda and her team be so kind and informative. I was able to schedule around work and get in when needed. I would have liked more goal and advancements in treatments from day to day, but other than that its been a great time!

I had a great experience with Rock Run Physical Therapy. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. They took the time to get to know me and I felt like I was always in good hands. The physical therapists helped me become more informed with my shoulder issues, and helped me in making decisions for further treatment.

— Randy J., Posted April 20, 2020

Great visit Consistent pain that was present when I first came here is now gone. Hopefully with the exercises I have been given for home, the pain will not return.
