Rehabilitation is a critical part of recovery following stroke. Although the recovery process is often most rapid in the first three months, patients can slowly continue to regain function for years after a stroke.
While recovering from a stroke, you can take confidence in knowing that the occupational therapists at Texas Health Plano will be with you every step of the way. They'll give you guidance, support and encouragement as you rebuild your strength, abilities and confidence. In addition to care from occupational therapists, patients in the stroke program receive support from physical and speech therapists. The team of therapists works to help patients regain balance, range of motion, swallowing, speech and language.
Therapists at Texas Health Plano are also sensitive to the behavioral, memory and emotional impact a stroke can have on a survivor. They work to design a care plan that addresses the needs of the whole patient - physical, emotional and spiritual. Plus, the team recognizes that stroke recovery requires determined effort by the survivor. You'll appreciate the positive attitudes, encouraging words and motivation from the therapists who are dedicated to caring for you throughout your recovery journey.
