Strokes, along with other nervous system disorders, neurological injuries, and conditions, can impair sensation, movement, and intellectual processes. More than 795,000 people sustain a stroke each year in the United States.

Stroke Rehabilitation

The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help you relearn skills you lost when a stroke affected part of your brain. Stroke rehabilitation can help you regain independence and improve your quality of life.

Stroke rehabilitation is an essential part of recovery. Successful stroke recovery depends on multiple factors including:

  • the part of the brain the stroke occurred in and the amount of damage it caused
  • the age, motivation, and general health of the stroke survivor
