post stroke condition rehabilitation

Stroke is a condition that occurs in 700,000 patients in the US annually. Taking into account the fact that 2/3s of them need rehabilitation after that becomes an acute problem for many people all over the world. The main goal is to acquire independence and to raise quality of life. Aftertreatment does not cure the consequences of cerebrovascular accident and it is not able to reverse cerebral damage, but at least it is conducted to help people attain the best outcome.

In post-stroke condition people have to relearn many skills that were natural before, such as walking and talking. It happens because part of brain suffered from damage and complex activity can be really a problem. During the aftertreatment the sick are taught to perform simple tasks. The physical problems also affect the psychological condition of the patient, who needs to learn to communicate again. The rehabilitation should be well-focused to achieve the positive results and afflicted people need much practice for that.

Who is affected

Cerebral accident happens after when brain cells die as a result of bad blood flow. As blood flow stops, they do not get oxygen and nutrients that are vital for brain. Around 80% of accidents occur because of the blockage in an artery of neck or artery in brain is blocked. A hemorrhagic accident occurs because of a burst blood vessel. It creates bleeding in the brain or around it.
