What's Included in Your Stroke Therapy?

Physical activities might include:

  • Motor-skill exercises to improve muscle strength and coordination
  • Speech therapy to improve speaking and swallowing
  • Training for using a walker, canes, wheelchair or ankle brace
  • Spasticity therapy uses exercises to ease muscle tension and help you regain fuller range of motion.
  • Activities of daily living allow patients to practice daily household and lifestyle tasks such as dressing, cooking and driving.

Cognitive activities might include:

  • Therapy can help you with lost cognitive abilities, such as memory, processing, problem-solving, social skills, judgment and safety awareness.
  • Therapy to help you regain lost abilities in listening, writing and comprehension
  • Activities of daily living exercises to help patients relearn signatures, medication management and handling finances

Where Should Stroke Rehabilitation Take Place?

Where you choose to continue your stroke recovery and rehabilitation matters. According to the adult stroke rehabilitation guidelines released by the American Heart Association, whenever possible, stroke patients should be treated at an inpatient rehabilitation facility rather than a skilled nursing facility.

“While at an inpatient rehabilitation facility, a patient participates in at least three hours of rehabilitation a day from physical, occupational and speech therapists. Nurses are continuously available and doctors typically visit daily. An inpatient rehabilitation facility may be a free-standing facility or a separate unit of a hospital.”**
