We help patients to relearn skills that are lost after an injury or damage to the brain and teach them new ways for performing tasks to compensate or circumvent any residual disabilities.
The most important element of our rehabilitation program is a strong consensus among our rehabilitation experts to offer well-focused, carefully directed, repetitive practices and therapies, which involve physiotherapy for passive and active movements, speech therapy for better communication, etc. We also have a team of psychiatrist, psychologist, and neurologist that strives to offer the most comprehensive services for the betterment of stroke survivors.
