STROKE REHAB MILWAUKEE
Inpatient Rehabilitation for Patients with Stroke.
Is Milwaukee Rehabilitation Hospital at Greenfield for You?
Admission for Patients with Stroke:
We care for and treat stroke survivors in need of extensive rehabilitation when the stroke, also known as a cardiovascular accident (CVA), has caused a significant decrease in the patient's ability to function day-to-day.
Milwaukee Rehabilitation Hospital can help:
Patients with a primary diagnosis of stroke, subarachnoid or intracerebral hemorrhage, or similar diagnoses demonstrating residual weakness, spasticity, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing foods or liquids with lack of coordination of movements).
Patients affected by COVID-19 who, as a result, may have also had a stroke requiring a combination of stroke and cardiopulmonary rehab to regain strength and body function.

Steve was diagnosed with a stroke in early December of 2022 which left him without the ability to move his right arm or right leg and he also difficulty swallowing.
Upon entering Milwaukee Rehab Hospital, he required assistance of our rehab therapists and one of our mechanical lifts to aid in his mobility. We established a rehab plan of care and goals with him and with our intense rehab treatments of physical therapy,
occupational therapy and speech therapy,
Steve was able to improve his function of his leg by walking 25 feet with some assistance from our rehab team and our unweighting system.
Our speech therapists helped him with his dysphagia and provided him tools to use for communication and clarity in his speech. We wish you the best, Steve, in your continued progress!
