Our brain controls our movements, our senses as well as the way we think and behave. When the blood circulation to the brain stops/reduces, the cells in that area may die. Inadequate blood supply to the brain may result in stroke.
Stroke rehabilitation involves a team of therapists with different skills who provide help and support to the patient so they can recover from the stroke quickly. The therapists who are involved in the rehabilitation process for a stroke patient include a physician, physiotherapist, psychologist, speech and language therapist and occupational therapist.
Stroke rehabilitation reduces paralysis, weakness and numbness and helps to restore mobility in the patient’s body. The goal of stroke rehab is to help an affected patient relearn and return to regular daily activities.
