Post Stroke Treatment & Rehabilitation
A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is caused by disturbances in the blood supply to the brain. which leads to the death of a group of cells that are dependant on that blood supply. As a result, the affected area of the brain cannot function. Depending on the area affected, this might result in an inability to move one or more limbs on one side of the body, inability to understand or formulate speech, or an inability to see one side of the visual field.
Previously it was thought that the damage caused by stroke was not treatable, however recent advances in treatment and rehabilitation indicate that much can be done, with the most gains achieved within 6 months. Aside from occupational therapy, hydrotherapy, speech therapy and physical therapy offered at Better Being Hospital, the use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment, growth hormone therapy, stem cell transplantation, intravenous nutritional interventions and various neuron stimulation techniques combined within an individualized physical rehabilitation plan, can help to regain power and improve quality of daily living dramatically.
Post Stroke Inpatient Program
Common post-stroke handicaps do have the potential to be treated. Common problems such as muscle weakness, walking difficulties, poor hand and finger functions, speech difficulties, eating, swallowing or bowel and bladder problems, memory and more have shown improvement with a functional medicine approach to treatment.
There is no need to suffer without hope from post-stoke or post-traumatic injury handicaps. You and your beloved family member can start to enjoy an improved quality of life with a 30 day treatment program designed especially for stroke patients and based on functional medicine treatment principles by Better Being Hospital. The program will focus on individual physical rehabilitation together with various interventions that target nerve cell regeneration. Better Being Hospitals treatment program includes:
1. Detecting the primary and any secondary causes which led to the current situation. Individualized assessments identify the underlying physiological imbalances which led to the cerebrovascular accident. This will help to formalize individual care plans in order to achieve maximal neuro-rehabilitation and neuro-regeneration. After an initial stroke, it is not uncommon to suffer additional cerebrovascular incidents. By working to resolve the underlying triggers Better Beings Physicians will help prevent additional incidents and further loss of function.
2. Interventions using the most up to date innovative treatments. Based on the condition, innovative treatments may include the use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment, intravenous nutritional interventions and various neuron stimulation techniques. Physicians will also address the potential for stem cell transplantation to assist your condition.
3. Individualized Physical Rehabilitation Program. An individualized physical rehabilitation plan, together with occupational therapy, hydrotherapy, and speech therapy may help to regain power and improve quality of daily life. At Better Being Hospital, we find that an intensive in-patient course of rehabilitation, combined with innovative treatments, yields faster results than normally occurs with intermittent physical therapy alone.
