Have you ever wondered what it’s like to recover from a brain injury or severe stroke? Many people don’t understand the intensity of the work that goes into a person’s recovery. There are three types of therapy needed. Physical therapy helps a person learn how to move – to stand up, move from one surface to another, walk, climb stairs. Occupational therapy works on a person’s skills for daily activities like dressing, bathing, cooking, fine motor skills, how their hands function. Speech therapists work on a person’s ability to communicate, their cognitive function, speech and their swallowing.
