REHABILITATION After Stroke

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.

I injured my left ACL racing BMX bikes at age 40 (not smart). My surgeon replaced my ACL and I started PT here shortly after. I had my first appointment with Brenda and she did a wonderful job listening to my concerns and most importantly my goals. She beat my knee the first visit, which was VERY unpleasant but necessary. Fast forward 6 weeks, and I have my full range of motion back. I can golf, ride bikes with my kids, and walk all day. When I finally make it big BMX racing in my 40’s, I’ll have a Rock Run sticker on my helmet.

I came to Rock Run PT from another PT office because I was not progressing fast enough. When I came to Rock Run PT and told them my issue, they started me out with small weights and my progression started. I improved my strength in my arm and shoulder. This was after the 8th surgery and with one arm. I had to improve my strength so I could do my daily workout in my 1/5th acre garden.

I was being seen for a torn MCL. Josh did a great job evaluating the issue and then designing a recovery program. I feel my knee is much stronger than before the injury. Everyone on the staff has been great. Very accommodating and understanding. Thank you for everything.

My experience at Rock Run has been amazing. When I first started coming to PT, I had a lot of pain in my hips and had a hard time walking/running.  After working with Brittnee, she showed me things I could do to strengthen my muscles. I have never felt better and my hips feel great. I can go on walks and runs now without pain!

I have had such an amazing experience at Rock Run. Everyone is so nice and I am so happy with how much happier I am with my ankle motion. Josh and Amanda have done such a great job at pushing me and helping me do things that I never would have been able to do on my own. I definitely struggled with walking and moving around before but I am moving much better and can do so much more. I am so thankful for everything that the employees at Rock Run have helped me accomplish. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need of Physical Therapy.

Very positive experience all around. At the beginning, I had a lot of pain when performing basic activities, like walking or going up stairs. I was very skeptical about the benefits that physical therapy could provide.

The exercises performed here took my body out of the comfort zone and were very awkward at first. However, after three weeks, I have seen amazing improvement. The pain level in my daily life and activities has dropped significantly and I can now say that I feel healthy again.

When I first came to physical therapy, I was having difficulty functioning at all because of my back. After two visits I was feeling so much better! I could not believe the difference! I loved that all the staff were focused on teaching me how to take care of my back, so I could do everything on my own. I even graduated early because my back was so much better!
