Stroke

A stroke can happen to anyone, at any age, without warning. Stroke survivors and their loved ones are left wondering what comes next, how their lives will be impacted and where to turn for help. When a stroke happens, Brooks Rehabilitation has the answers. We know that a stroke affects each individual differently, and we recognize that each stroke patient has unique needs. We have more than 47 years of experience in guiding stroke survivors through the recovery process.

As leaders in stroke rehabilitation, we partner with you and your caregivers to gain independence and take control of your life. We have the expertise, technology and treatment options to formulate your unique definition of recovery after a stroke.

Comprehensive Support

Our Stroke program functions on an evidence-based multidisciplinary approach supported by the latest research. We aim to support you through all the potential impacts a stroke may have, including medical management, diet and swallowing, cognition, communication, mobility, activities of daily living, psychosocial function and education.

We offer a full system of care to address patient needs at each stage of stroke recovery. Each of our clinicians use the same assessments, research-based treatment and recovery techniques which ensures a smooth transition through the recovery process. Our stroke treatment offerings include:

We ensure that we connect our patients to the community before discharge through participation in our vast array of community support programs. You can learn more about each program by clicking the links above.

Expert Stroke Team

At Brooks, each patient is cared for by a designated team of experts in stroke recovery led by our Brooks Medical Group physicians. Our clinicians are among the top in their field and actively participate in clinical research and education opportunities, both within Brooks and around the world.

We encourage our team to continually grow and improve through continuous education, residency and fellowship training programs. Our dedication to ongoing education and training allows us to provide the best possible care for our patients and their loved ones.

Technology

Our stroke treatment plans are designed to meet your individual recovery needs and goals. Our treatment plans help you progress from one care setting to the next using the latest state-of-the-art equipment and innovative, scientifically proven technologies. We use a wide range of tested and proven therapy technologies for stroke treatment including Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) of the extremities, functional taping, sensorimotor training with use of robotic and virtual reality devices, oral/thermal stimulation and surface electromyography for biofeedback for the treatment of dysphagia and specific interventions for other neurological symptoms of stroke. We also aim for continuous education of loved ones and caregivers to help improve participation in activities of daily living.
