Post Stroke Therapy to Retrain
your Brain & Body

Having a stroke may cause impairments in motor, sensory, cognition, psychosocial, and speech and language skills. Beginning the recovery process as early as possible can increase your chances of regaining your brain and body function that may have been impacted by your stroke. 

 

Our program can help improve the communication between your brain and your muscles known as neuromuscular communication. This can help regain your mobility, strength, and overall function to reclaim your independence and to be able to participate in your daily activities as well as the ones that are most meaningful to you.

Physical Therapy

Having a stroke may impact the muscles on one side of your body impairing your function and safety. This impacts your bilateral coordination and makes it difficult for you to perform functional activities such as standing and walking and may even make it difficult for you to sit up in a chair.

 

Physical Therapy can help retrain your brain's ability to communicate with your joint receptors and your muscles for your body to relearn motor skills. We can help you regain your mobility, increase your strength, and improve your overall function. Having a stroke can also affect a part of your body's ability to feel sensory inputs such as pressure, cold, and heat. Our Physical Therapists can assist with sensory reintegration, proprioceptive awareness, and overall safety awareness.

Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists can help you with the Physical, Cognitive, and Psychosocial impacts that you may endure as a result of a stroke. If your stroke has caused weakness and/or neglect to your dominant or non-dominant Upper Extremity, Occupational Therapy can help retrain neuromuscular control, improve sensory awareness, regain mobility, increase strength, and improve overall function.

 

Therapy can help you relearn lost fine motor skills, motor planning skills, and bilateral coordination, for safe and efficient participation in your daily activities such as self-care tasks and feeding skills. Occupational Therapy can address cognitive deficits including memory loss, provide coping strategies to support emotional disturbances, promote community re-integration techniques, and encourage active participation in your health and well-being. It can also help improve visual-motor coordination in the event of visual disturbances. Occupational Therapy can help with home modification and management to support the appropriate use of equipment within and outside of your home.

Speech Therapy

A stroke can lead to difficulties swallowing or may impact your ability to produce language. Aphasia is the most common language impairment as a result of a stroke. Aphasia means that you have difficulty producing words due to decreased neuromuscular connections.

 

The brain may not be sending a signal to the muscles needed to produce sounds. Our speech and language pathologist uses various techniques that can help you relearn how to swallow and communicate effectively. She can also help address cognition deficits that may have occurred as a result of your stroke. 

Throughout your rehabilitation, our team will collaborate to ensure your program is most efficient for your individual needs.

Sciatica Treatment

After six months of suffering sciatica, going to a chiropractor and acupuncture with no relief, I found this company and Dr. Kimberly Seman whom after 4 or 5 visits rendered me pain free. She is so knowledgeable about the body and I knew instantly after our first session I was on my way to recovery. I must also add how very sweet and kind she was as she performed her skills on me. I will be forever grateful to her.
