Why is Stroke Rehabilitation Important?
Following a stroke, rehabilitation is crucial to a patient who might need to relearn abilities, including basic physical movements and speech, to be independent. Having such a rehabilitation program after a stroke is critical in helping the stroke patient’s brain recover.
According to the American Heart Association, 10 percent of stroke survivors can recover completely with the help of a rehabilitation program. Some patients may need long-term care, while 40 percent may have to live with some impairments.
The long-term goal of our stroke rehabilitation program Florida is to ensure that the patient will learn to cope with any impairments and may still have a good quality of life. We want all our patients to enjoy the dignity of living, take care of themselves despite their condition, and reintegrate with their community without problems.
Duration of Stroke Patient Rehab at Neulife
Every rehabilitation is different as it depends on the patient’s resolve and capacity to get better and recover skills they have lost due to stroke. Stroke rehabilitation takes time and a joint effort by the patient, the patient’s family, and the multidisciplinary team at Neulife Rehab. Patients need all the support that they can get and our team of qualified professionals is with them at every stage.
Stroke rehabilitation begins within 48 hours after the incident. In the first two to four weeks, hospital rehabilitation is a must to ensure that the patient’s condition improves, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
Our stroke rehabilitation program often entails repetitive tasks, exercises, and activities that are focused, specific, and well-directed so that stroke patients can slowly go back to doing the things they used to do. Patients perform exercises that improve coordination, strengthen parts of the body, and improve blood circulation to affected areas.
Stroke patients also need to perform activities to improve their speech and cognitive skills, so physical, occupational, and speech therapy may be part of the rehabilitation program, as well as a variety of care while in recovery. The outcome of these programs depends on the severity of the patient’s condition.
