What to Expect from Physical Therapy After a Stroke
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.

Jared and his team are amazing! I went in for problems with my hip after a car accident. This was the first time I have ever had to do physical therapy and I LOVED it! They were patient with me and very kind! Once they pinpointed the muscle that was giving me grief and worked on it, it was like a night and day difference. They taught me how to do some of the stretches and workouts at home even if I didn’t have all the equipment they used on me there. I also appreciate their follow up with me after I’ve completed treatment, letting me know I can go back if I have any problems. I would definitely recommend Jared and his team hands down, and go back if needed! Thanks guys!
I highly recommend Jared and his staff for any physical therapy needs. My recovery has been accelerated as a result of their expert care.
