Each year more than 700,000 people in the U.S. suffer from a stroke. Not only does stroke affect the brain, it makes physiological changes throughout the body. We know from recent research that following a stroke, the body heals and continues to make changes over the next several months and even years. An opportunity for survivors of stroke to continue their recovery and maintain their current level of function is with weekly exercise at the Brooks Stroke Wellness Program.

Brooks Rehabilitation is proud to offer a stroke wellness program in partnership with the YMCA’s of Florida and Halifax Medical Center. Through these partnerships, we are able to offer survivors of stroke multiple locations with supervision, motivation, and support.
