According to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, “Stroke is the largest cause of complex disability in the UK, and approximately one-third of stroke survivors are left with disability and rehabilitation needs”.
Physiotherapists help those who have had a stroke regain their mobilisation as well as prevent stroke reoccurrence. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapists recommends, “Physiotherapy is clinically effective throughout the patient pathway [and that] emerging evidence shows that physiotherapy very early after stroke (mobilisation within 24hrs) and at high intensity leads to better outcomes”.
