Why Is Stroke Rehabilitation Important?
A stroke suddenly occurs often with no warning, it occurs when blood is cut off from the brain which can result in not being able to function as well as previously. Physiotherapy and other methods of rehabilitation are essential in helping patients to function after the stroke.
After strokes people can often feel confused and struggle to do many activities which were easy beforehand, with the help of rehab and our trained and understanding staff, patients can relearn skills they are unable to perform as well as learning how to function after the accident.
Research has shown that stroke sufferers recover much more functionality and at a much quicker rate if they participate in regular rehabilitation sessions than people who do not.
