A stroke is caused by a disruption of blood flow to the brain as a result of a blockage or leakage in a blood vessel. The effects of a stroke vary depending on the severity of the blockage or leakage but can affect movement, speech, memory and emotions, making every day tasks difficult.
Rehabilitation is very important following a stroke. It should commence as soon as possible and continue until an individual has reached their maximum potential. Our specialist neurological physiotherapists and occupational therapists work with the individuals and their family/carers to achieve their optimal potential.
At SP Therapy Services we understand that a stroke can cause a huge change in lifestyle for an individual and their family. We also understand that everyone wants the best opportunity to seek the maximum recovery for their loved ones.
We often fill the gap between discharge from hospital and the availability of NHS outpatient or community services. We can then work alongside our NHS colleagues to maximise the individual’s opportunity for recovery.
