Stroke and Brain Injury
Stroke is a leading cause of disability in adults. Physical therapy can help relieve the effects of a stroke by working to improve balance, walking, and the use of assistive devices. Common therapies for post-stroke rehabilitation include constraint-induced movement therapy, functional electrical stimulation, motor image, partial body weight support, and neuro therapy techniques, such as biofeedback. Biofeedback is a type of neurological therapy that helps improve awareness of muscle function and how it may need to be changed. This is done by attaching electrodes to the skin in order to measure muscle activity on a screen. After a stroke, our physical therapist can help you regain your functional skills so you can get back to living your life independently.
A traumatic brain injury requires immediate and ongoing care to ensure that the brain can regain optimal functionality. Following a traumatic brain injury, whether as a result of a sport incident, a car accident, trip and fall, or other event, it is imperative that you undergo physical therapy. By participating in treatments with our Palmyra, MO or Florence, SC physical therapists, we will ensure that you can get back to normal life as quickly as possible.
Left untreated, traumatic brain injuries can result in physical unsteadiness, falls, severe shaking, nausea, impaired vision, and more. It is also possible that brain injuries could even inhibit growth in young children. Fortunately, at Priority Physical Therapy, we are continually discovering new ways to help patients living with the complications of a traumatic brain injury. By contacting our Palmyra, MO or Florence, SC physical therapy clinics, we can ensure that there is no lasting damage following the trauma.
