Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredA recreational therapist helps you to get back to leisure activities that you enjoyed before your stroke. In doing so, recreational therapists can have a positive impact on your quality of life. For example, a recreational therapist will help you find ways to play cards or read books if you have weakness or disability in an arm or hand following your stroke. This type of therapist will also help you use your leisure time to enhance your health and independence.
