What is the typical recovery timeline after a stroke?


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


The majority of improvement in stroke recovery is usually seen within the first year; however, it is important to note that progress can continue beyond that timeframe, depending on the individuals specific circumstances. Factors such as the severity of the stroke, location of brain damage, overall health, and the effectiveness of rehabilitation efforts all contribute to the duration and extent of recovery.
