I had my stroke or injury several years ago, will rehabilitation work for me?
Research suggests that recovery tends to be at its fastest within the first 18 months to 2 years following injury or illness. However, after this period people can still make life changing improvements with rehabilitation as the brain and body are still able to change. However, the rate of change is just slower than immediately after onset. The MOTIONrehab Team have had great success and positive outcomes numerous years after initial illness or injury. (Please see our case studies and testimonial section). During your first appointment, your therapist will discuss your individual goals and be able to advise on possible improvements and outcomes.
