Stroke Screening

Neurological PT and OT screen for people who have had a stroke to determine if they are good candidates for therapy and /or advanced technology for neuro recovery.

DATE(S):
July 11th:  10:45am – 12:30pm
July 16th:  2:45 – 4:30pm

LOCATION:  90 Good Drive, Lancaster, PA

What: Neurological Physical and Occupational therapy screen for people who have had a stroke to determine if they are good candidates for therapy and /or advanced technology for neuro recovery. Screenings are free and by appointment only; availability is limited.

Who: People who have had a stroke (recent or years ago) but still experience one or more of the following symptoms:

• Residual weakness on one of both sides
• Limited mobility or inability to walk
• Cognitive deficits from the stroke
• Trouble completing daily tasks such as bathing or getting dressed
• Frequent falls
• Increased weakness or decline in functionality (especially if following an illness, infection or fall)

Why: Recovery from a stroke is a life-long process.   Recovery occurs the greatest in the first 6 months after having a stroke, but with proper rehabilitation, a stroke survivor can see continuing improvement for years. A guiding principle is neuroplasticity. Growing evidence suggests the brain and spinal cord have the ability to ‘rewire’ which can lead to functional return. This leads to hope for people with neurological conditions and more potential for recovery. HARTZ has teamed up with Vivistim, a vagal nerve stimulator company, to maximize these neuroplastic conditions in the brain.  Vivistim has been FDA approved for upper extremity recovery for people post stroke.

This is a FREE screening and will take approximate 30-minutes which includes the completion of your history and an informational questionnaire followed by 1:1 time with the therapists.
