Stroke Rehabilitation

Valley Medical Center Stroke Rehabilitation service is a multidisciplinary team of professionals who specialize in the assessment and treatment of stroke survivors. They allow patients to resume their everyday activities in the least restrictive environment possible and maximize their independence.

Our team includes the following professionals:

Rehabilitation Medicine Physician - Our provider has experience in stroke rehabilitation and provides medical assessment and a comprehensive and coordinated care plan for the patient's best recovery.

Physical Therapy helps a stroke survivor regain strength, range of motion, safe mobility and reduction of pain. The therapist will provide a home program and/or mobility aids to ensure patient safety at home.

Occupational Therapy helps a stroke survivor improve their self-care skills. This includes everything from feeding, bathing, dressing to higher level functional skills such as preparing simple meals and time management skills.

Speech-Language Pathology helps a stroke survivor improve their swallowing, cognitive and basic language skills. For patients with muscle paralysis to the face, mouth, or neck, eating can be unsafe and communication difficult.  The Speech-Language Pathologist can assess the patient to make sure they can swallow safely.
