Stroke Rehabilitation: Regaining Independence and Quality of Life

Stroke is a medical emergency caused by interrupted blood supply to the brain, leading to brain cell death. Quick diagnosis and treatment are crucial to minimize damage and complications. Like many conditions, strokes are preventable and treatable. Visit our Kanata physiotherapy clinic for expert care in Ottawa.


Symptoms of Stroke :

Types of Stroke :

  • Ischemic Stroke:  Arteries leading to the brain are blocked or narrowed, reducing blood flow and causing brain cell damage.
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke:  Blood vessels in the brain leak or rupture, leading to bleeding and potential brain damage.
  • Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA):  Often called a “mini-stroke,” this is a temporary decrease in brain blood supply, causing temporary neurological symptoms.

Prevention :

  • Controlling High Blood Pressure (Hypertension):  Exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet, and avoid alcohol and smoking to manage high blood pressure effectively.
  • Consume Less Cholesterol:  Reduce salt intake and consult your doctor about low-fat diets to lower cholesterol levels.
  • Quitting Tobacco/Alcohol/Drugs:  Quit smoking, alcohol, and drugs to significantly reduce the risk of stroke.
  • Controlling Diabetes:  Manage diabetes through regular exercise, a balanced diet, adequate sleep, and meditation.
  • Eat Fresh Fruits and Vegetables:  Consume fresh fruits and vegetables rich in essential vitamins and proteins for overall health.
  • Exercising Regularly:  Engage in regular exercise such as swimming or jogging for at least 30 minutes a day to maintain physical fitness and reduce stroke risk.
