Stroke rehabilitation

  • A stroke can happen to anyone at any age. The physical, mental and emotional impact of a stroke can range from mild to severe. The goal of rehabilitation is to regain as much independence as possible. Following a stroke, your care team will recommend the rehabilitation services that best meet your needs. 

  • Care at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute

    Care is provided by a team of compassionate rehabilitation specialists. The team is led by physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists). We work together toward your goal of improved personal function and independence.
