Stroke Rehabilitation

Every 53 seconds, someone in this country has a stroke. But 4.5 million stroke survivors are alive today because of excellent rehabilitation care and treatment. Rehabilitation helps nerves and muscles communicate with each other again, often in new ways that help people maximize function and success.

Stroke Program

Many stroke survivors face the challenge of regaining both cognitive and physical skills - skills that were automatic before their stroke. Whether the need is to regain speech, relearn motor skills, or both, St. David's Rehabilitation creates individualized treatment programs to match unique needs.

St. David's Stroke Rehabilitation Program is dedicated to guiding patients through extensive activities that promote wellness and comfort for a lifetime. Whether someone has experienced a mild, moderate or severe stroke, our goals are the same: returning him or her to the family and community, easing pain, promoting mobility and function, and advocating for a productive future.

Our approach to stroke rehabilitation is unique because we do not use a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Our program is structured around the severity of the stroke, the location and type of stroke, and the unique needs of each patient.

Comprehensive Services

St. David's Rehabilitation is an integral part of the St. David's St. David’s Neuroscience & Spine Institute and the Comprehensive Stroke Centers. Because of this connection, patients have immediate access to stroke specialists and technologies.

The program is lead by board certified rehabilitation physicians with expertise in stroke rehabilitation. Our stroke-dedicated team provides:
