A ‘brain attack’, or a stroke occurs when blood supply to brain cells is disrupted, depriving them of oxygen and nutrients which leads to their rapid disintegration. As brain cells begin to die, functions performed by the affected area such as muscle control, movement of arms, legs, etc. are lost. Look for signs such as trouble in speaking and understanding, paralysis and numbness, blurred or blackened vision, headache, dizziness, vomiting, altered consciousness and seek
A stroke can be caused either by a blocked artery, as in the case of ischemic stroke, or due to the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel during a hemorrhagic stroke. Certain lifestyle and medical risk factors such as obesity, physical inactivity, consumption of alcohol, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes, etc. increase the chances of causing a stroke. People who are 55 and older are at a higher risk and so are those who have a personal or family history of stroke.
Ischemic stroke These occur when an artery is either blocked or becomes too narrow leading to the formation of clots. Treatment includes administrating tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) directly into an artery of the brain to dissolve the clot or the use of a catheter to remove the clot physically.
Hemorrhagic stroke These are caused when blood leaks into the brain which in turn creates pressure. Treatment is focused on controlling the overall pressure of blood and to prevent any sudden constrictions of blood vessels.
Having a healthy
& nutritious diet
Other medical factors such as keeping diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol under control can also reduce the risk of stroke.
If the stroke affects that area of the brain which controls muscle movement, then a person may experience symptoms such as muscle spasms, balance problems, and joint pain . Regular physiotherapy sessions conducted early in a patient’s journey will help in restoring mobility, improving health, managing pain and instilling confidence in the patient to remain active and involved in everyday activities. Treatments include exercises such as stretching, walking, manual therapy to massage joints and assistive device training.
