Stroke Rehabilitation Rehabilitation

Stroke rehabilitation is a critical part of stroke survivors' care। When blood flow to the brain stops, brain cells get damaged, which is what causes a stroke, which is also known as a cerebrovascular accident। Stroke rehabilitation is a way for people to regain their abilities and improve their quality of life after a stroke। An overview of critical components of stroke rehabilitation can be found here.

Strokes can be classified into 2 main categories:

Strokes that are ischemic. These are strokes brought on by an artery (or, in rare cases, a vein) obstruction. An estimated 87% of stroke cases are ischemic.

Stroke hemorrhaging. These are bleeding-related strokes. Hemorrhagic strokes account for about 13% of all cases.

Stroke rehabilitation goals may vary depending on the patient's condition, but they usually include,

Restoring mobility and strength.

Improving fine and gross motor skills.

Addressing cognitive deficits.

Promoting independence in activities of daily living (ADLs).

Managing emotional and psychological issues.

Preventing complications such as pressure sores or contractures.
