When a stroke occurs, life can change in an instant. Stroke survivors deal with a flood of emotions, along with physical limitations. Survivors often suffer grief and sadness. Depending on the severity of the stroke, neurological damage can drastically alter one’s quality of life.

Recovering from a stroke can be one of the most difficult obstacles you or a loved one have ever faced. The best things you can do are seek help for symptoms of depression and anxiety, spend time with family and friends, maintain your quality of life by staying active and doing things you enjoy, and most importantly, make the most of your rehabilitation.

 

What Therapy Options are Available for Stroke Survivors?

The most common rehabilitation therapies for stroke survivors are:

Signs and Symptoms of Stroke

Stroke can happen to anyone at any age. As the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of stroke so you can be ready if one happens to you or a loved one.

To help guide us through the signs and symptoms of stroke, we lean toward the expertise of the American Stroke Association.

What are the Symptoms of Stroke?

  • Loss of control of muscles or feeling of numbness on one side of the face, leaving a drooping or uneven appearance.
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body, commonly in the arms but can occur throughout the body.
  • Speech is suddenly slurred or hard to understand, with some cases having a sudden loss of speech.
  • Low vision, double vision, blurred vision, tunnel vision or blackout within one or both eyes.
  • Sudden onset of vertigo, dizziness or inability to balance.
  • Sudden or intense headache.
  • Nausea which can also be accompanied with vomiting.

Don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1 if you or someone else is experiencing these symptoms. Time is of the essence and the longer you wait, the more detrimental the outcomes can be.
