Stroke Rehabilitation

Regaining Function After a Stroke

Your rehabilitation from a neurological condition is vital to re-learning lost skills and finding new adaptive skills to maximize your independence. At Carondelet Health Network, you find:

  • A coordinated team approach to neuro rehab and stroke rehab
  • An expert team of health care professionals that may include physiatrists (doctors specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation), rehabilitation nurses, psychologists, audiologists, case managers and rehabilitation counselors, as well as occupational, physical and speech-language therapists
  • Unique approaches, such as computer-assisted and aquatic therapy

Conditions We Treat

Rehabilitation for your temporary, progressive or permanent neurological illness or injury is specialized specifically for you. Common disorders of the nervous system that we treat include:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Progressive neuromuscular diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Memory or cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease
  • Swallowing disorders or dysphagia
  • Spine injuries and disorders
  • Infections such as meningitis, encephalitis, polio and post-polio syndrome
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Neuromuscular disorders, including muscular dystrophy
  • Neuro-medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, Guillian-Barre Syndrome and epilepsy

What to Expect

Your first neuro or stroke rehabilitation appointment will begin with a thorough evaluation of your condition, questions about your medical history, symptoms and nature of your injury (if applicable), so we can create the best possible plan for you. The activities you’ll perform in each session are meant to help improve your balance, range of motion, mobility, coordination, memory and endurance.

Carondelet uses three unique approaches to treatment that you may encounter:

  • LiteGait: One system we may use is LiteGait, a suspension system that allows your therapist to safely move you from a seated position to a proper upright posture, allowing change in posture, balance, specific muscular strength and overall gait patterns.
  • Computer-assisted therapy: This treatment is used at St. Mary’s  to help treat deficits in communication and cognition.
  • Pool therapy: This treatment helps promote recovery and physical well-being through movement in the water. Aquatic therapy can provide many benefits.
