Stroke Rehabilitation Program in Petersham

Stroke

Stroke is a major cause of disability in Australia and those discharged from hospital after a stroke often face ongoing challenges such as arm or leg weakness, limited mobility, communication and swallowing issues, cognitive difficulties, fatigue, and pain.

Our experienced clinicians can create a tailored program with activities and therapies designed to help your brain adapt to and recover from a stroke. We aim to assist your brain in relearning or finding new ways to perform skills impacted by the stroke.

If you are struggling with the effects of a stroke, please contact our friendly team at Royal Rehab LifeWorks Petersham to find out how we can help.
