Abstract

Patients who suffer from a stroke end up losing some mobility in one or both sides of their body which hinders them from performing their daily functions. This makes strokes one of the leading causes of disability as well as the fifth leading cause of death in the United States (Pinel & Barnes, 2018). The lack of blood supply to the brain creates bodily dysfunction because of the decay of various neural tissues in the brain (Pinel & Barnes, 2018). Since strokes are considered to be one of the leading causes of disability, it is important and necessary that rehabilitation is aimed at helping those who suffer from strokes regain control over their daily operations. After a stroke has occurred, there are multiple rehabilitation options available, but there is a major discrepancy among whether ethnicity, socioeconomic status and location of residency inhibits one’s recovery or not. Some data suggests that there are pretty significant disparities in stroke outcomes in the United States with respect to ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographical area, age, gender and type of rehabilitation, amount of rehabilitation, level of rehabilitation.
