Stroke and Brain Injury

Therapy for stroke and brain injury is performed by a multi-disciplinary team that consists of physical, occupational and speech therapists.  These specialists work in a one-on-one setting to maximize home and community independence by addressing functional, cognitive and physical deficits. Treatments may include balance and strength training, use of new adaptive equipment, cognitive, language or swallowing training along with education to minimize the risk of future stroke and brain injury.

Rehabilitation Programs & Support
  • Brain Injury, Concussion and Stroke Specialty Programs

    Specialty Programs are intensive outpatient programs that help people make the transition from an acute-care setting to their homes, jobs and communities.

    These Specialty Programs are offered at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth and are centered on a commitment to personalized care, shaped to help fit your specific needs and goals.

    During program hours, you participate in therapies designed to optimize functional, cognitive and physical skills. When appropriate, therapists may go with you to your home or workplace to ease the use of the strategies and skills learned during rehab.

    Family members are also considered an integral part in setting therapy goals and transferring skills to the home environment. Because these Specialty Programs recognize that brain injury affects the whole family, various forms of support such as education and counseling are offered to members of your family.

  • Stroke Recovery and Support

    Stroke is considered a brain injury, and rehabilitation focuses on recovery from day one.

    Therapists at Texas Health facilities work closely with each patient to develop a personalized rehabilitation plan. Therapists and technicians develop tools and strategies to help patients meet the demands of life's daily activities. The stroke centers also include access to support groups, education and prevention programs.
