Stroke recovery can depend on a number of factors including:
- stroke's cause, location, and severity
- type and degree of impairments and disabilities caused by the stroke
- patient's overall health
- family support
How fully you recover also depends on the type of stroke.
A person who survives a hemorrhagic stroke has a better prognosis for recovery than a person who has an ischemic stroke. With a hemorrhagic stroke, once the blood is removed, the affected brain cells still may function somewhat. But, brain cells that die during an ischemic stroke don't grow back.
Our stroke rehabilitation program:
At Banner Health, rehabilitation begins during the acute treatment phase. As the patient's condition improves, a more extensive rehabilitation program is often begun.
Rehabilitation is designed to meet each person's specific needs; therefore, each program is different. Our stroke rehab programs can help with:
