A stroke is a life-changing event that can affect not only physical health but also emotional well-being. At Maximum Solutions, we specialize in stroke care, offering a comprehensive and compassionate approach to help individuals regain their independence, improve function, and rebuild their lives after a stroke.

The Aftermath of a Stroke 

Strokes can lead to a range of physical challenges that often require physical therapy treatment to address. In addition to addressing common challenges like loss of fine motor skills, balance, mobility, and coordination resulting from stroke, other physical consequences of stroke that may benefit from physical therapy include:

  • Hemiparesis or Hemiplegia: Weakness or paralysis on one side of the body. 
  • Sensory, Speech, and Swallowing Changes 
  • Spasticity: Increased muscle tone or stiffness in affected limbs.
  • Contractures: Abnormal shortening of muscles and tendons.
  • Muscle Atrophy: Loss of muscle mass and strength due to reduced use.

Physical Therapy for Stroke Care

Physical therapy is vital in addressing physical challenges after a stroke. Physical therapists create personalized treatment plans to improve strength, mobility, balance, and overall function. Physical therapy aims to enhance the individual’s quality of life and promote independence in daily activities through a combination of exercises, manual therapy, assistive devices, and education. Here are a few common elements of stroke care:

  • Electrical Stimulation
  • Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT)
  • Range of Motion (ROM) Exercises
  • Strength and Cardiovascular Training 
  • Neurodevelopmental Techniques (NDT)
