Stroke

Strokes are the 5th leading cause of disability in the nation. A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is reduced causing brain damage. As a result, most cases involve physical impairments that include weakness, paralysis, and balance deficits. Parr PT specializes in stroke recovery with treatments to improve strength, balance, and overall quality of life.

Our stroke recovery program uses specific techniques and myokinesthetics to target the nerves necessary for brain recovery. Each program includes six weeks of video exercises with one on one training. In addition, caregiver training is provided to ensure each patient’s safety with the program. Also, other treatments include MATRIX gait training for those wheelchair bound to return to walking. This walking device uses a series of bungees to help move the weak leg forward while maintaining good posture. Not only can patients walk safer, but with more confidence.
