Experiencing a stroke can be a frightening and life-altering event, both for you and your loved ones.
Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology play a crucial role in stroke rehabilitation to help regain your mobility, strength, balance, and coordination. The effects of stroke can vary greatly from person to person and at Hastings Physio and Health your treatment plan will be specific to your needs and goals.
Here’s what to expect at Hastings Physio and Health:
Our therapists work closely with your medical team. We start by assessing mobility, strength, balance, and coordination. Based on the assessment, a customised rehabilitation plan is created to address your specific needs and goals.
2. Your Personalised Plan:
Our physiotherapists prescribe tailored exercises to improve muscle strength and joint flexibility, helping patients regain movement in affected areas. We will help you practice everyday tasks to improve motor skills and coordination, promoting independence. Specific exercises are designed to enhance fine motor skills, which are essential for tasks requiring precision and dexterity.
Our therapists use exercises and activities to improve balance, reducing the risk of falls and enhancing confidence in mobility. Your progress is monitored through regular assessments, and the treatment plan is adjusted as we see your improvements and progress in your recovery.
