Physical therapy usually begins pretty quickly after the stroke, often even in the hospital. An experienced Chubbuck physical therapist will conduct an important evaluation to guide the treatment they prescribe after your stroke. Your physical therapist will conduct a thorough assessment that includes:
- Taking a health history
- Discussing your symptoms in detail
- Detecting risk factors associated with the condition
- Observing your ability to move, stand, walk and do other movements
- Conducting a hands-on physical assessment
- Developing a custom treatment in line with your goals, challenges and needs.
The aim of care is to restore functions and relearn simple motor activities. How Physical Therapy can help post stroke:
- Restore movement
- Restore walking ability
- Decrease disability
- Improve function
- Increase strength
- Increase balance
