Understanding the Basics
If you or your loved one recently suffered a stroke, you are not alone. In the United States alone, someone has a stroke every 40 seconds, and over 795,000 people have a stroke every year...
A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident, can be caused by blood clots and broken blood vessels in the brain. Strokes often lead to a variety of physical challenges depending on the location and extent of brain tissues that were affected by this loss of blood flow.
Imago Rehab recognizes that stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability, and we are passionate about supporting our patients' recovery. It's never too late to get started and reach your goals.
Symptoms of Stroke
There are many different physical and cognitive changes that may occur after a stroke. Common symptoms include:
Difficulty moving one side of the body
Reduced balance and coordination
Pain and stiffness in the body
Muscle tension or tightness during movements
Challenges with memory, speech, language, problem solving, and perception
No matter what challenges you are facing, Imago Rehab has evidence-based programs and tools to help. We address pain, mobility, and functional skills to support your recovery.
Life Impact of Stroke
Stroke symptoms can lead to difficulty with common, everyday tasks, such as:
Self-care (dressing, bathing, grooming, toileting, managing health)
Walking, driving, and getting around the community
Home management (cleaning, laundry, and meal preparation)
Leisure and social activities
At Imago Rehab, we integrate occupational therapy into your daily tasks. We can help you physically recover, regain your independence, and live a life that you enjoy!
