We know that recovery from a stroke does not end after being discharged from the hospital and inpatient rehabilitation. At Penn Therapy & Fitness, we believe physical rehabilitation is a critical part of stroke recovery—a person’s functional limitations after stroke can range from mild to severe.
Our team of stroke rehabilitation experts partners with you and your doctor to help return you to your most productive, rewarding lifestyle. Therapists weave coping strategies, education and practical solutions into a patient’s therapy plan. Strokes can have a major impact on an individual’s physical, emotional, work and personal lives.
Our stroke rehabilitation program provides a comprehensive array of therapies including physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapies. Your Penn Therapy & Fitness therapist will work with you to develop a rehabilitation plan that’s right for you, including:
