Stroke therapy

A stroke can cause problems with speech, vision, memory, balance or coordination. It can leave part of the body weakened or paralyzed, among other physical problems. Patients may have to relearn how to walk, talk, or do daily activities.

At Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital, we focus on helping our patients regain life skills and learn new ways to do tasks. Our comprehensive program also addresses each patient's personal goals. Here are some of the physical and mental problems that a stroke can cause:

  • Weakness or paralysis on one side of the body, or in one arm or leg
  • Muscle stiffness or muscle spasms
  • Balance or coordination problems
  • Difficulty speaking or understanding speech
  • Being unaware or ignoring one side of the body, or being unaware of the stroke's effects
  • Memory, thinking or learning problems
  • Pain, numbness or odd sensations
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Bowel or bladder control problems
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
