Stroke

 

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. It can be treated and prevented. Patients with stroke may experience confusion.  they may slur words or have difficulty understanding speech.

They may also develop sudden numbness, weakness or paralysis in their face, arm or leg. This often happens just on one side of your body. A sudden, severe headache, which may be accompanied by vomiting, dizziness or altered consciousness, may indicate having a stroke. Many people who have had strokes experience some memory loss.

Others may have difficulty thinking, making judgments, reasoning and understanding concepts.More than half of the patients surviving a stroke attack suffer from cognitive impairment.  Along with pharmacological management, cognitive retraining is also very inevitable to manage the symptoms.

We create therapy plans that consider the unique needs, abilities and objectives of each patient diagnosed with stroke.
