Continue to See Progress with Stroke Recovery

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
  • available family and social support
  • participation in high-quality neurorehabilitation therapies

For stroke survivors, the brain’s ability to rebuild means the opportunity to see improvements, however big or small, with continued therapy. Research shows therapy that is focused, intense and repetitious is beneficial in helping the brain to rebuild following a stroke. Stroke recovery is a lifelong process, and stroke rehab can help at any stage.
