The NeuroRehab and Balance Center can help you regain function and increase independence after a stroke. We'll help you find the motivation, strength and skills to reclaim your life.
A stroke can affect all aspects of life-mobility, communication, thinking and automatic functions such as swallowing and breathing. Depending on the location and intensity of the stroke, recovery may be a prolonged process. Our clinicians empower patients to advocate for themselves as they navigate through the many challenges following a stroke. We work step by step through the recovery process on the personal goals that are most important to each stroke survivor and their families.

"As a recovering stroke patient, my experience at The Kettering NeuroRehab & Balance Center has been a bright spot in an otherwise dark time in my life.
Initially, I was impressed by the array of equipment available to use as well as the attitude of the therapists which made me feel comfortable and eager to get started on my journey to recovery. To quote one of the many inspirations messages on the walls of the gym "the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."
As I progress through my therapy programs, I have been both challenged and encouraged by my therapists. This has instilled in me the desire to work harder to reach my goal of regaining the ability to function and improve my quality of life."
