A stroke can change not only the patient’s life, but also the lives around that person. Stroke recovery can involve many professionals, including speech therapists, rehab specialists, dietitians, psychiatrists, and social workers. Not the least of the needed professions is physical therapy.
At Kreis Physical Therapy, we provide a comfortable outpatient clinic for you to access professional stroke rehabilitation. If you have questions or are ready to make an appointment, please reach out to us in Catonsville and Canton, MD.
Stroke Rehabilitation with Kreis Therapy
Stroke rehabilitation involves the cooperation of multiple professionals, the patient, and the patient’s family for the greatest success. Post-stroke rehab is all about recovering the patient’s well-being in all areas: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Kreis Physical Therapy is just one part of the picture, but does not merely address physical needs alone. We see every patient as a person and provide an effective treatment plan per individual.
The issues a stroke can cause include:
- Speech problems
- Sensory inhibitions
- Cognitive and memory problems
- Emotional disturbances
- Vertigo (more on that below)
Meanwhile, the goals of stroke rehabilitation are to restore:
- Mobility skills
- Independent living skills
- Social skills
- Speech skills
- Cognitive skills
- Comfortable living with family
Post-Stroke Treatment for Vertigo
If the stroke affected the brain stem or the cerebellum, it could leave patients with a vestibular disorder. In other words, patients could feel dizzy and lose balance. Kreis Physical Therapy helps patients recover and maintain balance through a series of suitable exercises. Post-stroke treatment for vertigo is just one of our stroke rehabilitation specializations.
