Recovering from Stroke

Recovery is different for everyone


SkiingStroke survivors often ask how long it will take for them to get back to where they were before their stroke. It is different for every person. Many factors influence how long it will take to make functional improvements after a stroke such as age, location and type of stroke, previous medical history, and other medical conditions. However, the single most determining factor in rehab recovery is repetition. The more attempts at completion of the function trying to be regained, the better the chances of that function returning. It is often a long process, so patience and determination are key factors leading to success.


No two strokes are the same, and no two people are the same. Therefore, neither is the rehab process. ORION’s specialty is individualizing and optimizing a patient’s treatment and home program so that they are tailored to each individual’s deficits and environment. Receiving therapy at home enhances the development of the individual program and maximizes the gains a person can make while practicing at home.
