A stroke can be a life-altering event. It is important to start rehabilitation as soon as possible in order to regain as much function as possible. In this article, we will discuss the different types of stroke rehabilitation and what you can expect during your recovery.
There are three main types of this rehabilitation: physical, occupational, and speech. Physical therapy will help you regain strength and mobility in your affected limbs. Occupational therapy will teach you how to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing and dressing. Speech therapy will help you regain the ability to communicate effectively.
You will likely work with a team of rehabilitation specialists who will create a personalized treatment plan for you based on your individual needs. The length of time it takes to recover from a stroke varies depending on the severity of the stroke and the individual’s own natural healing process. However, most people continue to improve long after they have completed their formal rehabilitation program.
We hope this information has been useful to you.
