Not all stroke survivors are the same and not all rehab providers and facilities are the same. It's important for you, the consumer, to have an idea what your greatest limitations from stroke are, what therapies might help the most, and where to find providers skilled and who have the tools to help you most. We've asked local therapy providers to tell us about their services and any special skills and technologies they have and use especially for stroke rehab. You decide what place and providers can best meet your needs.
