Stroke Rehabilitation Therapies

Explore different types of therapies and discover what creates the best results for you. Be curious and research everything you come across because the brain likes variety. Also discuss what you find with your doctors and therapists. Here are a few that my friends and I explored that helped Champion the Challenges of Stroke Rehabilitation.

Aphasia Therapy

Watch, listen and see images that stimulate your brain to improve your speech. This therapy can be practiced at home, at your favorite coffee shop or with your family for feedback. Explore this technology and have a discussion with your therapists and doctors to see if it might be right for you.

Aquatic Therapy

The healing power of water is amazing and a therapist can help you with a series of exercises that can be beneficial to your recovery. The buoyant water and the fluid motion adds a level of ease and comfort that can provide a different approach to your normal therapy. The exercises can be varied to work on upper and lower body independently or at the same time.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that enhances your body’s natural healing process. It is simple, effective and painless. You are placed in a hyperbaric chamber, with increased atmospheric pressure, combined with 100% oxygen. You can watch a movie or nap, and you’re done in 60 to 90 minutes.

Neuro Acupuncture Rehabilitation

Neuro-Acupuncture is a treatment in which needles are placed on points in the scalp that correspond to specific areas of the cerebral cortex. Although it is commonly used for post-stroke, Neuro-Acupuncture can be used to treat many neurological issues.

Neuro Rehab Devices

Stimulate your mind and body using the newest innovations focused on helping stroke survivors regain mobility. These devices can be used as part of your regular therapy sessions. Explore them and have a discussion with your therapists and doctors to see if they are right for you.

Virtual Reality (VR) Therapy

Healthcare VR therapy offers therapeutic activities developed with extensive input from rehabilitation experts. Typically, the activities support rehabilitation of the upper body with a focus on strength, range of motion, and postural control. You can also explore VR for relaxation and mindfulness exercises and travel the world through VR in the comfort of your home.
