Strokes (also known as cerebrovascular accident or CVA) occurs when the brain stops getting oxygen due to a clot causing decreased blood flow, or ruptured vessel in the brain. Causing certain weaknesses, strokes can trigger partial or complete paralysis of the body called hemiplegia.
Almost half of the stroke patients survive the disability as the brain tries to adapt with recommended physiotherapy but it takes years to recover from it. Physiotherapy for strokes shows fast recovery initially in the first few months however in a few years its pace slows down. Physiotherapy needs to continue for years even after the patient leaves the hospital to attain maximized recovery.
Strokes disrupt the balance and posture of the body, making it difficult or almost impossible to move. Only the medicines aren’t enough, the patient needs proper therapeutic help as well.
CurativoClinic’s physiotherapist recommends that the patient’s journey improves with the function of the body, better health and offers independence if Physiotherapy is applied at an early age.
