Stroke Rehab Physiatrist in Fremont
Rehabilitation is an important aspect of recovering after a stroke. A physiatrist—also
called a doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R)—could
help you in your post-stroke recovery journey. The purpose of stroke rehabilitation
is regaining lost skills, including activities of daily living. These
skills are those lost by the part of the brain that was affected by a stroke.
The central nervous system is remarkable in its ability to adapt. You could
be surprised at the functionality and mobility you are able to recover.
Practicing and exercising these recovered skills is critical. Your Fremont
physiatrist at Washington Township Medical Foundation can help you in
this endeavor and support your recovery goals effectively.
