Stroke physiotherapy services

What we do

Stroke physiotherapists provide specialist assessment, treatment and management of patients suffering from the symptoms of stroke.

The aim of physiotherapy is to maximise a person’s independence and to promote physical activity. Patients are individually assessed and each patient will have their own programme of treatment to facilitate achieving specific goals. These may be related to walking, balance, using the affected arm and hand.

If appropriate, patients can access the orthotics department the botulinum toxin clinic and a stroke exercise group.

Where we are

The service is both hospital based and community based. Within York Hospital, the service is delivered on the acute stroke ward, on the rehabilitation unit and in an outpatient setting. In the community, patients are seen within their own homes or within any other appropriate and relevant community setting.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
