Our clinic serves the needs of individuals who have had a stroke. A stroke is either caused by a blood clot or a bleed in the brain, which may result in impairments of cognitive abilities or physical functioning. We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy to improve overall mobility, range of motion, balance, walking, endurance, independence with daily living skills, return to work and driving skills, emotional regulation, cognitive skills, visual skills, communication skills, and swallowing ability. Your treatment sessions will be customized to the appropriate intensity to optimize your outcomes. We make your safety a high priority. You can expect to have your vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure, etc.) monitored during sessions. Our therapists maintain clear and consistent communication with your referring doctor regarding aspects of your care.
You will receive an individualized evaluation in clinic. One unique aspect of Washington University physical therapy is that your speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy are all one-on-one sessions. Your therapist will provide you with cutting-edge, evidenced based treatment to focus on restoring function or learning compensatory techniques to allow you to function as independently as possible and meet your individual goals. Your therapists work as a team to optimize outcomes across all disciplines. You will also be provided with individualized home exercise programs in all areas.
