Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery exercises


Avatar m tn Helping a person recover from stroke is collectively termed as stroke rehabilitation. For the motor skills physiotherapy is needed. Techniques such as exercise, manipulation, massage, skills training and electrical treatment are used. Consult a neuro physiotherapist and follow the instructions at home. To improve memory functions, you could try a lot of ‘brain teasers’.
Avatar n tn Is it true that the (stroke) recovery that one makes 6 months or 1 year later is probably the most they will recover?
Avatar m tn You should really go to an occupational therapist to get specific exercises. Good luck.
Avatar n tn m learning to pace myself, even with my rehab exercises. After all, what good do the exercises do if I do everything the PT assigns one day only to end up in bed resting/sleeping for the next day or two, unable to do 'any' of the assigned exercises? I definitely agree, pace yourself, learn how much you can do each day and don't do more or you will pay. Stamina will grow but most likely very slowly.

1110049 tn?1409402144 Yes I did and what worked for me personally was to put everything I had into getting better. Everyday I spend hours just doing various exercises. So far I've made a pretty good recovery only have mild foot drop with no hand extension yet.
478387 tn?1210762308 I suffered a stroke after dissecting my carotid. My carotid was not operated on and closed 100%. My doc says it is safer for me to leave it alone. A partially opened artery is a great risk for strokes. You want 100% open or 100% closed. He explained to me that the other arteries in the brain can supply the brain with enough blood. I think the operation risk outweighs the gain. I know that it can be a little hard to accept. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn In addition physiotherapy is needed for promoting recovery after stroke. Electrotherapy persay may not help. You can learn the exercises and she can do them at home and go for periodic review. Please discuss this with your doctor he may recommend a physiotherapist near your place. Regards.

Avatar n tn It is the most important aspect of recovery of a stroke patient. Physiotherapy may also improve the head symptoms. Please consult a good physiotherapist for regular exercises. Improved blood circulation may cause a speedy recovery. Please consult a physician to get your father’s blood pressure monitored in different postures and a symptomatic treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn My husband is coming home from a care center on Wednesday after surviving a very serious hemmoraghic stroke. The stroke occurred June 28th. He was operated on that day and has been in rehab skilled care for all this time. I am afraid I am not doing enough for him. He has atrial fibrillation and has been put back on coumadin. He walks with a walker, but is unbalanced and may fall causing another stroke. A gait belt is used to steady him when he walks.

Avatar n tn My perception of faces since a considerable bleed in a stroke I had in Feburary has resulted in my seeing faces differently to my memory of what they looked like. This is not just faces of family and friends, but all faces. In a neuro psychological test I remebered less than 10% of the faces shown but had no problem with all other memory tests. Can anyone explain the reason for this drastic change in perception and if I will regain my ability to remember faces?
