Physiotherapy for stroke

The brain is made of different areas which control varying functions of the body. When an area of the brain is damaged it can have a serious impact on the life of the person affected. A Stroke is caused by a compromise in the blood supply to an area of the brain. This leads to a lack of oxygen reaching the affected area and causes this area to become damaged. This can result in problems with movement, speech, memory and balance. Physiotherapy aims to help recover lost function, stimulate new movement pathways and promote independence. This is completed through therapeutic handling, task orientated rehabilitation and specialist devices designed to reduce the impact of the condition.

The effect the stroke has on the individual’s life will depend on the areas of the brain which have been damaged and the size of the damaged area. At Leeds Physiotherapy our specialist team of neurological physiotherapists are experts in the assessment and treatment of those affected by stroke. Our patient centred approach means that your goals are at the centre of everything we do. Some of the common symptoms and problems we have helped people with include:

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
