Physiotherapists are trained to treat persons with disabilities related to sensory and motor disabilities. These therapists are trained in physiology and anatomy related to normal functioning, with a special focus on movement.
They evaluated endurance, strength, gait disturbances in stroke patients, sensory deficits, and freedom of movement to develop individual stroke rehabilitation programs aimed at regaining control over sensory and motor functions.
Physical therapists help stroke survivors reuse damaged limbs, create a continuous exercise program to help patients retain their newly developed skills, and teach compensation strategies that will help reduce the effects of lingering deficits.
Occupational therapy involves mastering a stroke survivor with the skills necessary for everyday life, including dressing, eating, taking care of yourself, and going to the bathroom.
Occupational therapists, such as physical therapists, are usually concerned with improving sensory and motor skills. They help stroke patients learn the skills needed for activities / jobs such as cutting hair, cleaning, and cooking.
As the name suggests, occupational therapists can also help retrain the high-level functions that survivors need to return to work.
