Choosing a Service Provider for Physical Therapy After a Stroke
It is hard to overstate the potential value of physical therapy after a stroke. The results of a stroke can vary widely from patient to patient, with some experiencing only mild symptoms, while others must contend with a more serious loss of mobility.
There is a lot of research that supports the ability to change your brain even after a stroke. Unfortunately, these changes are not always positive and can lead to some long term secondary complications. Physical therapy is designed to help you guide your nervous system to be able to perform specific task properly.
At Enable Exercise, we're excited for the opportunity to use our skills as allied health professionals and our passion for helping people to open new doors for those recovering from a stroke.
The Importance of Physical Therapy for Stroke Patients
Why invest in this service? There is clear evidence that physical rehab can be an essential part of the recovery process for stroke patients. Here are some of the reasons why physical therapy receives so much consideration in these cases:
Improved balance. Independent movement following a stroke can sometimes prove to be a challenge, but by pursuing exercises that help you feel more in control, we can work towards better balance.
Regaining overall coordination. Our experienced therapists know the right exercises to help patients feel more in control of their movements.
Redeveloping strength. Both the stroke itself and the inactivity that follows can rob your muscles of their prior strength. We use exercises designed to help aid muscles in their recovery.
