Stroke rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation is a critical part of recovery for many stroke patients.The effects of stroke may mean that one must change, relearn, or redefine how one lives. Following stroke, a person may have difficulties functioning physically (e.g., unsteady gait, weakness, or paralysis), cognitively (e.g., memory, language, or perceptual problems) or emotionally (e.g., anxiety and depression).

Successful rehabilitation depends on:

  • How early rehabilitation begins
  • Extent of the brain affected
  • Expertise and dedication of the rehabilitation team
  • Cooperation of family and friends

Stroke rehabilitation like that offered at Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network helps individuals return to independent living. Each person is unique, and rehabilitation will be tailored to the individual’s specific needs. The comprehensive stroke rehabilitation team can include a rehabilitation doctor (physiatrist), rehab nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language therapist, social worker, neuropsychologist, and recreation therapist.
