Recovery and Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation after stroke may include the following activities, as prescribed by your doctor:
- Physical therapy—to regain as much movement as possible
- Occupational therapy—to assist in everyday tasks and self-care
- Speech therapy—to improve swallowing and speech challenges
The Post-Stroke Clinic
The Post-Stroke Clinic at Lee's Summit Medical Center provides a continuum of care including ongoing stroke treatment and rehabilitation at one convenient location. Our inter-disciplinary team includes nurse navigators, neurologists and physiatrists who answer questions and provide support for the best possible chances of full recovery. In addition, we'll help assess health needs, screen for depression, and monitor treatment options such as medication, test results and lifestyle changes. We can also refer patients to physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and adaptive/assistive devices.
