Stroke Rehabilitation helps people with impairments after a stroke to regain as much function and independence as possible in physical, cognitive, emotional, communicative and social domains. Rehabilitation interventions are a set of activities that begin early after the stroke occurs, once the stroke survivor is medically stable and can identify goals for rehabilitation and recovery.
