Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and the biggest cause of long-term disability in Singapore. There are often significant residual deficits in terms of physical as well as cognitive function. A well-designed rehabilitation program is the key to maximize one’s ability to function after a stroke.
Physiotherapists work closely with other medical and allied health professionals to ensure this. They play an indispensable role in retraining the correct use of muscles, as well as educating the patient’s caregivers on appropriate transfer techniques and exercises to facilitate recovery.
