Physical Therapy for Stroke victims
Effective treatment can help you recover as well as possible from your stroke. Physiotherapists play a key role in your healthcare team while you are in hospital and afterwards. The healthcare team will provide you with a rehabilitation programme to help you become as mobile and as independent as possible. As part of your rehabilitation, your physio will provide treatment tailored to your specific needs. Depending on the severity of the stroke, physiotherapy can help you with getting your muscle control and strength back. A physio may also work with continence nurses to help you with bladder control, if that is a problem for you. They will support you and those around you throughout your rehabilitation, to get you back to your everyday life as well as you are able. Physiotherapy has been shown to work through clinical studies and research and is a treatment you can trust.
