The Stroke Center at the TWU Dallas campus is renowned for outpatient treatments and research programs that aid in the rehabilitation of stroke and traumatic brain injury patients.
Lesser known is the hands-on training the center provides to TWU graduate students. Physical therapists in training help clients relearn how to move or walk, while future speech-language pathologists lead them through exercises that help them regain the ability to communicate. Students assist in conducting research with life-changing implications, such as determining which part of the brain controls balance or whether chronic back pain can be alleviated with transcranial magnetic stimulation.
Amazingly, the clinic offers these services for free thanks to the financial support of generous donors.
