Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or blocked. This can be caused by an internal bleeding in the blood vessel or a blood clot in the brain. Over 13 million people will have a stroke each year and around 5.5 million people will die as a result.

    • The most common type of stroke

    • A blood clot in the brain that causes a lack of blood supply to the brain

  • Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA)

    • It occurs when there is a temporary loss of blood supply to the brain

Treatment for Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation can help stroke survivors regain independence and continue their daily lives. Stroke survivors will re-learn skills lost when the stroke damages their brains. They will also learn new ways of performing everyday tasks without letting disabilities interfere with their daily lives. Therefore, starting the rehabilitation treatment as soon as possible after the stroke is essential. It will help the patients regain many functions.

Our physiotherapists at Fizo Kare Physiotherapy Centre will customise the type of stroke rehabilitation for stroke survivors' needs based on their condition. Activities carried out during the rehabilitation may vary with time, along with the change of needs and progress in the skill levels. Family members and carers of stroke survivors can also involve in the rehabilitation activities to enhance the effectiveness of the stroke rehabilitation treatment.
