When blood flow to the brain is altered or halted, a stroke occurs, requiring medical attention. Even with quick treatment restoring the flow of blood, the patient may be dealing with damage to the brain. Depending on the severity, some temporary or widespread problems may occur. So, how can you prevent the complications of a stroke?
An essential aspect of recovery after hospital treatment is stroke rehab, which can prevent any complications. This rehab may include physical, occupational, and speech therapy, depending on your symptoms. These therapies help you regain strength, mobility, motor functions, and speech for more independence and better quality of life. Stroke rehab also offers medical supervision, emotional, and vocational support for reduced stress and anxiety during rehab.
