We at APARC offer the best Stroke rehabilitation in India with an inpatient residential facility.
Stroke or brain attack is a condition known as a cerebrovascular accident that occurs when the blood flow to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, causing impaired or loss of oxygen and nutrients to brain tissue. Within a few minutes, brain cells called neurons begin to die.
A stroke is a medical emergency. Prompt treatment is crucial, and early action can minimize brain damage and its potential complications.
Early recognition of symptoms of stroke can prevent severe brain damage. If you see any of the below symptoms, and the person is getting a brain attack.
- Difficulty with speaking.
- Difficulty in understanding.
- Numbness or paralysis on the face, arm, or leg.
- Visual impairment.
- Sudden severe headache.
- The trouble with walking.
Do seek medical attention if immediately you notice any signs or symptoms of a stroke.
- Think "fast" and do the following:
- Face: Ask person to smile, and Look if one side of the face droops down?
- Arms: Ask person to raise both arms above, and Look if one arm is difficult to rise?
- Speech: Ask the person to say some simple phrase. Look if their speech is slurred?
- Time: If you observe any signs mentioned above, call an ambulance immediately.
TYPES OF STROKE
Based on causes of stroke, it could be:
Ischemic stroke happens when blood supply to part of the brain is impaired or completely blocked, resulting in less or no oxygenation to part of brain tissue leading to the death of these cells.)
Hemorrhagic stroke : (occurs when damage is caused by bleeding inside the brain due to artery rupture, aneurysm rupture).
EFFECTS OF STROKE
Impairments and dysfunctions caused by a stroke depend on the part of the brain that is damaged. Our brain is different functional areas. A person who suffered a stroke may develop following dysfunctions/impairments depending on the area of the brain damaged.
- Hemiparesis (weakness of motor function)
- Hemiplegia (paralysis)
- Speech problem
- Swallowing problem
- Speech problem
- Emotional disturbances
- Spasticity, stiffness in muscles, painful muscle spasms
- Problems with balance or coordination
- Problems with memory, thinking, attention or learning
- Problems with bowel or bladder control
Initial recovery after stroke comprises spontaneous recovery as soon as the various factors such as the resolution of penumbra, inflammatory, metabolic activities, and later recovery occurs as a result of a process called neuroplasticity and motor learning. Our brain has a nature-given capacity to reorganize itself in response to the demand put upon it. This process is known as neuroplasticity. We learn new activities throughout our life, such as driving a car, playing guitar/piano, or learning a new language—these are all possible only because of neuroplasticity changes.
RECOVERY AFTER STROKE
Recovery after stroke depends on the extent of brain damage and how well the therapy is targeted that includes:
- The skillful intervention of the rehabilitation team
- Family support.
- Time of rehabilitation
- Active patient's involvement
Stroke rehabilitation needs highly skillful intervention by a team of neuro physiotherapists, neuro occupational therapists, speech therapists, neuropsychologists, and neurologists as far as pharmacological therapy is necessary. At the APARC team of best neuro physiotherapists and other team members, we led neurorehabilitation experts to excel by providing the latest and updated best treatment for stroke and best stroke rehabilitation in India.
HOW REHABILITATION HELPS STROKE PATIEN
Our stroke rehabilitation specialists would do a detailed assessment of impairment and accordingly plan goal-directed and outcome-based intervention. These interventions are not just simple stretching or strengthening exercises perhaps consist of various research and outcome-based therapeutic approaches.
The various evidence-based therapeutic approach exists to help stroke are:
Motor-learning program, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, NDT/BOTATH, different technology-based therapy like transcranial direct current stimulation, body weight support treadmill training, EMG biofeedback therapy, virtual reality games, and task-specific training all skills above treatments are based on motor learning principles and neuroplasticity, and we strongly recommend/practice them.
We are a dedicated team of neuro physiotherapists, occupational therapists, orthotics & prosthetics, speech therapists, and neuropsychologists specially trained in various neurorehabilitation techniques. Such as:
Stroke is not the disease itself; it is a destructive process caused by some underlying condition and results in a group of impairment/disabilities depending upon the area of the brain damaged.
