Best stroke recovery tips

By | Blog, Other Information | 2 Comments

In moderate or severe injury, most of the rehabilitation process is experienced in the first three months after the stroke. The recovery continues, more slowly, until at least six months, and some patients continue to recover slightly near the year. Not all patients will fully recover. The time a patient will require rehabilitation (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or other) will vary depending on the objectives of each case. Thus, in an elderly patient with severe disease, rehabilitation can focus on getting a transfer from the bed to the wheelchair easily. This can be done in a few days or weeks. However, in a young patient, occupationally active, with mild to moderate speech or mobility impairment, rehabilitation can last up to six months, or until he/she reaches his/her greater functional capacity and return to work. These are some tips that will take you for a better and fastest rehabilitation. 1. Practice exercises repetitively One of the most important tips to speed recovery after a stroke is to practice repetition, which is repeating the exercises over and over again. This habit promotes neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to recover itself after injury. 2. Follow a healthy diet Eliminate all processed…

Pets and Stroke

By | All about Stroke, Blog, Other Information | One Comment

Strokes are a devastating condition in humans, but they are even more emotional when it is your pet that has had the stroke. First, it is difficult to notice the symptoms because the pet can’t tell you what it is feeling. Second, some pets have strokes and then recover on their own. The point is that pet strokes are a problem, and they can lead to difficult times for your pet as they recover. Of course, it would take a good deal of rehab to get a pet back to the pre-stroke shape. It is time and money intensive, but fortunately, strokes in pets are not that common. Dogs with brain tumors, diabetes, Cushing’s disease, and other rare diseases and conditions are likely to cause a dog to have a stroke. It is usually not something that happens spontaneously, but it is possible. If you think your dog is having a stroke, it is important to get them help as soon as possible. The treatments are limited for strokes in dogs, but a vet will be able to watch the dog to make sure the condition does not worsen. How to tell your pet had a stroke There are many…

Adaptive equipment for stroke survivors

By | Blog, Other Information, Support and help after Stroke | No Comments

When strokes occur, the initial response is to concentrate on helping your loved one come out of the situation healthy. However, after all of the health scares are over, most stroke survivors are left with significant deficits that can cause problems in independence. These problems can arise over many activities, and they are usually addressed in the lengthy rehabilitation process. During that process, many forms of adaptive equipment are introduced to help the stroke survivor achieve as much independence as possible. The activities of daily living, or ADLs, refer to the routine steps we take to care for ourselves. Most stroke deficits affect the ADLs, and the equipment is designed to address these issues. These activities include dressing, grooming, bathing, walking, and eating. Fortunately, technology has been developed to allow even the most affected stroke survivor to perform some or all of these tasks independently. Even if your loved one is not able to perform them independently, they may be able to perform them with supervision or minimal help. It is helpful to consider some of the equipment you may need to use with your loved one. The best health care provider to ask about adaptive equipment is your occupational…
