Stroke

Stroke

A stroke occurs when there is an interruption of the blood supply to the brain. The interruption of a blood supply to the brain deprives it from oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brains cells begin to die. A stroke is a medical emergency.

The good news is that the long term effects of a stroke can be effectively treated.

The long term effects of stroke can be extremely uncomfortable and debilitating. It is often very difficult to adjust back to a regular lifestyle. For some, their lives are never quite the same. However, there are measures to minimize the potentially crippling repercussions of a stroke through consistent physical therapy.
