Stroke - Neurological Rehabilitation Specialists in Orange County

Dr. Cheng,

I'm in Orange County. My husband, Dale, had a stroke a few weeks ago and cannot use
his left side at all. Our doctor referred us for stroke or neurological rehabilitation to
help him regain his functions. I want to know how long does it take to come back from
a stroke and what's involved with stroke rehabilitation?

I'm sorry to hear that your husband, Dale, has suffered a stroke. I know it's a difficult time
for you and your family. We'll definitely keep you and Dale in our prayers.

Stroke rehabilitation is different for everyone. Some patients have recovered fully in 3
months while others have taken years. It really depends on how much brain functions
were damaged from the stroke and where the damages occurred.

For most stroke patients, the average recovery time is between 6 to 12 months before they
see significant improvement in daily functions. Of course some will take less time than
others but this is the average.

Our stroke rehabilitation program will help Dale regain the use of his left arm, hand, leg,
and foot again.  It is a long program and it is a difficult process for most people because
they're not used to seeing their loved ones disabled.  But keep in mind that this is only  
temporary and functions will return in time.  You just have to be patient.

How we differ from other clinics when it comes to stroke rehabilitation is our results.  Our
program is one on one, comprehensive, detailed, custom, and results-driven. We take the
time to learn from you what your main concerns are and what you are struggling with most
at home.

Once we set your goals then we draw out a treatment plan that is going to help you
achieve those goals.  We break it down by weeks and months so you will have a detailed
plan on what to expect and how you will meet those milestones through our neurological
rehabilitation program.

This is extremely important in stroke rehabilitation because if you don't have this plan, you
will lose focus and hope.  You have to understand that stroke rehabilitation takes time and
the progress is small.  But we're here for you and we're going to do our best to help you
and Dale get back to your normal life again.
