Strokes

What to Expect from a Chartered Physiotherapist after a Stroke

A stroke can be a life-altering event that affects not only the individual but also their family and loved ones. It is common for those who have suffered from a stroke to experience physical, emotional, and cognitive changes, making it challenging to carry out daily activities. This is where a chartered physiotherapist can help.

At Medella Home Therapy, our chartered physiotherapists are experts in manual handling and mobility assessment, and they provide personalised physiotherapy services to help stroke patients recover their independence and improve their quality of life. Here’s what you can expect from a chartered physiotherapist after a stroke:

  • Assessment: A chartered physiotherapist will carry out an assessment to understand the individual’s physical abilities, limitations, and goals. This assessment will help the physiotherapist develop a personalised treatment plan.

  • Personalised Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, the physiotherapist will develop a personalised treatment plan that will include exercises, stretches, and other therapeutic activities to help the individual regain their strength, mobility, and coordination.

  • Improving Mobility: The physiotherapist will work with the individual to improve their mobility and help them to regain the ability to carry out daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs, and carrying out household chores.

  • Pain Management: A chartered physiotherapist can also help manage any pain or discomfort the individual may experience after a stroke.

  • Education and Advice for Carers: A chartered physiotherapist will also provide education and advice to carers and family members to help them understand how they can support the individual’s recovery.

With the right support and treatment, those who have suffered from a stroke can make a full recovery and regain their independence. Our chartered physiotherapists are here to help and support you every step of the way. If you or a loved one is suffering from the effects of a stroke, contact us today to find out how we can help.
