The symptoms and severity level of stroke can vary from mild unsteadiness, to severe coordination problems and paralysis. Julie has over 25 years experience working with individuals of all levels of disability from stroke. Testing typically occurs over 1-3 sessions, to be certain we gain thorough understanding of the effects of the stroke on your movement. Strength, balance, walking, posture, endurance, spasticity/tone of muscles, and ability to move are all measured. Therapy sessions and home exercises are determined with you, and prescribed according to your tolerance to activity, current schedules, travel distance to the clinic, and symptom types. This can range from twice weekly to once monthly. Duration of therapy can range from weeks to months. Many people post stroke continue with semiannual wellness check ups upon the completion of their therapy program. This offers you the ability to have your status professionally monitored for any changes to strength, flexibility, balance, and walking pattern. Your home exercise routine is adjusted as needed.
