Dr. Kay Wing, who as a child had the painful experience of watching her beloved Grandfather lose normal function following a stroke, had a dream for a better quality of life for stroke survivors. She wanted to be able to serve the needs of those with neurological disorders. After many years of practice as a physical therapist in rehabilitation and earning her specialist certifications in neurology and geriatrics, Dr. Wing had a wealth of clinical expertise. As manager of several rehabilitation facilities, she had management experience. Using these skills, she founded Southwest Advanced Neurological Rehabilitation in 2003. It soon became known simply as SWAN Rehab. It has now expanded to serve those with other problems as well as neurological conditions and stroke.
Therapy at SWAN is based on the philosophy that motor function can continue to improve regardless of the age of the individual or how many years have passed since the stroke or injury.
