Stroke Rehabilitation Q & A

What are the symptoms of a stroke?

Stroke symptoms may include:

  • Vision difficulties affecting either or both eyes
  • Slurring words, difficulty speaking, or being unable to comprehend what others say
  • Difficulty walking
  • Dizziness
  • Poor coordination
  • Severe headache
  • Numbness or weakness on either side of your body, usually in your face, arm, or leg

Stroke symptoms start suddenly, so if you notice these symptoms developing gradually it could be a different type of neurological issue. If you suspect a stroke, fast action is essential. The faster that you receive treatment, the better. A stroke is a medical emergency, so if you or someone you love experiences the symptoms of a stroke, you should proceed to the nearest emergency room immediately. 

What if my stroke symptoms go away quickly on their own?

If your stroke symptoms fade rapidly, it doesn’t mean you can forget about it and carry on as normal. You may have experienced a transient ischemic attack, sometimes called a mini-stroke, a serious condition that means you’re going to have a stroke in the future without further medical intervention. Treat temporary stroke symptoms the same way you treat lingering ones: with immediate medical attention.

When do I need to start stroke rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation can begin almost as soon as you’re stabilized after the stroke. For many stroke sufferers, rehabilitation starts in the hospital, and then continues in a rehab facility and then in an outpatient setting. Starting your stroke rehabilitation promptly and being dedicated to the program ensures that you get maximum results. 

What does stroke rehabilitation include?

Stroke rehabilitation includes a wide range of care, with common treatments including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Vision therapy
  • Treatments to reduce spasticity, if present

Ultimately, the goal is to help you recover maximum physical mobility, range-of-motion, strength, and daily living skills. At Frank Y. Wei, M.D., PLLC, Dr. Wei leads a team of medical professionals to guide you through stroke recovery.
