What is a Stroke ?

A stroke is the rapidly developing loss of brain function(s) due to a disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) caused by thrombosis or embolism or due to a hemorrhage. As a result, the affected area of the brain is unable to function, leading to inability to move one or more limbs on one side of the body, inability to understand or formulate speech or inability to see one side of the visual field.

 

Specialist Physiotherapy for Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery

Recovery following a Stroke

After a stroke, control signals from the brain often cannot reach some muscles, typically in the hand or foot. Without these signals, the level of electrical activity in these muscles is too low for them to contract adequately on their own. This causes them to become increasingly weaker.

How can Neurocare Physiotherapy Help My Recovery ?

It is important to begin your stroke rehabilitation as soon as possible. Neurocare offer a variety of treatment methods including hands on physiotherapy and functional electrical stimulation (FES).
