“I look forward to coming to Synaptic because it gives me hope that I’m going to progress. It’s a great team here who are really positive. Every therapist provides a unique perspective and works great as a team, giving me things, I can do at home. Functionality is important to me, and they provide some assistance with that as well. I have made a ton of gains since I first started here. I am walking a lot better, I have way more strength, and I can do a lot of functional things I couldn’t do before, which gets me back to a sense of normalcy that I had before the stroke, obviously. That’s a huge thing! I journal and focus on the gains that I do every visit.”

“If people would only come here, they would know how important it is for your after care. I have significantly changed since coming to Synaptic and can now empty my urine collection bag by myself, transfer a lot easier and every muscle that does work, they work it out here. I love it! Anybody with a significant change after an accident like myself, you will want to come here. I came from a word-of-mouth referral and will tell a million other people to come here too!”

“I started at Synaptic to try to regain some function in my right hand and leg. I like attending Synaptic because the staff is friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable, and they maintain a positive attitude. They are also not afraid to admit when they don’t have the immediate answer and will try to find the answer before our next session. I especially appreciate that they collaborate and check the previous notes before the next appointment, so that we can build on the therapy. I like the team approach since different therapists all approach problems slightly differently to attain the same goal. That keeps sessions varied and interesting.”

“I enjoy the great atmosphere at Synaptic; everyone wants to see each other succeed. It’s given me a chance to accelerate my recovery process and has allowed me to work on skills that are applicable to sled hockey for the upcoming season. I’ve been able to stand with a walker on my own for the first time in three years. Synaptic has also helped me get to a point where I’m slowly able to take almost unassisted steps. I want others to know that not only will you see progress through recovery at Synaptic, but you will also want to come back each and every time afterwards.”

“Synaptic is one awesome place if you have issues which require improvement with stroke rehab. I’ve become stronger, healthier, I’m walking better, and it’s good for my mental health. It’s a great place, the talent of the therapists and the equipment that they have can make a world of difference to you if you are in need of support. The therapists are knowledgeable, supportive and encourage you to do better!”
