What is a Stroke?

A stroke occurs when a blood clot or a ruptured artery or blood vessel stops the blood supply to the brain or to an area of the brain, causing brain damage as some cells to die. It is one of the major causes of disabilities in adults.

How does one feel right before or when having a stroke?

  • Suddenly weak maybe with a numb or tingling feeling in the face, arm or leg
  • Having trouble speaking
  • Losing the ability to see in one eye or having double vision
  • Having a sudden headache
  • Feeling dizzy and unable to coordinate movement

How do you know someone is having a stroke?

  • If their face looks uneven
  • If they cannot raise both arms at the same time
  • If they sound strange when they speak

In case of the above, call an ambulance or go to the nearest medical center.

What are possible disabilities caused by a stroke and how are they treated by Physiotherapy?
Probable disabilities caused by a stroke are:

  • Balancing of the body is hindered
  • Difficulty in standing, sitting and walking
  • Muscles become flaccid/rigid on the affected side
  • Speech problems
  • Confusion and poorer memory
  • Reduced bladder control
  • Difficulty in swallowing

Physiotherapy can help people regain most of their physical functionality and mobility by:

  • Normalizing muscle tone in the affected areas
  • Helping improve coordination, mobility, stability and strength through exercise
  • Re-teaching the most functional activities to promote independence
  • Helping deal with the change in or loss of sensation
