Wherever you are, you can expect stroke rehabilitation programs and exercises to help you acheive your recovery goals.

Will I Get Back To Normal?

It’s one of the most common questions we hear from a stroke survivor.

Whilst we’ve no crystal ball nor do we offer any prognostic advice, we do stand by the fact that we will help you as much as clinically reasonable to acheive your goals.

You see, every year more than 60,000 Australians suffer a stroke. This number will only increase with the aging population the growing epidemics of obesity, physical inactivity and diabetes.

So if you or someone you know is affected, you’re not alone.

Therapy For Stroke Brisbane

Are You Getting Enough From Your Stroke Rehabilitation Program?

It’s a sad reality, Australian stroke survivors in hospital (public) receive 25% or less of the recommended daily dosages of stroke rehabilitation therapy i.e. 37mins/day instead of 3hours/day.

In the USA, in-patients must receive a minimum of 3hours/day for at least 5 days a week.

So, have you received enough to warrant the results you have achieved? For our mind, outcomes for people who’ve survived  a stroke are unacceptably low. We’d like to change this situation an that’s what our Brisbane Stroke Rehabilitation OT services is committed to.

You’ll likely may already know that your neurorecovery happens when stroke rehabilitation harnesses the opportunity of neuroplasticity.

What we don’t see in Australia is this being optimised to its fullest potential.

Strong Recommendation For The Amount Of Stroke Rehabilitation

For stroke survivors, rehabilitation should be structured to provide as much scheduled therapy (occupational therapy and physiotherapy) as possible.
(Lohse et al. 2014 [23]); Schneider et al. 2016 [29]; Veerbeek et al. 2014 [80])

For stroke survivors, group circuit class therapy should be used to increase scheduled therapy time.
(English et al. 2015 [20])
