Physiotherapy for stroke patients at home

There is strong evidence to support continuing your stroke rehabilitation physiotherapy in the community because the goals you set are more tangible and relevant to your life. There is more of a focus on participation, we use your strengths and interests to work towards any relevant goal. This can vary from patient to patient, depending on your age and ability. Physiotherapy for stroke patients can help with improving walking, transfers, running, swimming and general strength and mobility. Anything is possible if the goals set are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely) and reviewed with the patient, family and physiotherapist. 

As physiotherapists, we have excellent knowledge of neuroanatomy. Reviewing scans and images of the brain allows us to interpret how particular strokes affect different parts of the brain and the impact this has on the presentation of someone’s impairments and deficits. With this understanding, physiotherapy for stroke patients has a focus on neuroplasticity. Through repetition and task-specific practice, the aim is to improve neural pathways to enhance your recovery. Physiotherapy at home for stroke patients provides a familiar and enriched environment, promoting new neural connections and improvements in function.
