Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain! trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal. Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.My back ground story is here:

Master Any Skill in 10,000 Hours?

I know this was meant as tongue in cheek, but we have to look at this as a blueprint for our recovery. Then there is Peter Levines specific number, How many repetitions? ' A lot'. You can read about talent vs. work in these two books. Talent does not exist until the work/practice is put in.
The talent code : greatness isn't born. It's grown. Here's how / Daniel Coyle.
Talent is overrated Colvin, Geoffrey.
They essentially say that innate talent doesn't exist, it is all just focused practice, just like our massed practice therapy.
For you math geeks.
6 hours, 6 days a week. 36 hours a week. 1872 hours a year. A little over 5 1/3 years to complete 10000 hours.
Just think of how many different tasks we need to practice. And we get maybe 3 months of therapy.

Before I can even attempt my 10000 hours I have to move functions to a different part of my brain. No estimate on how long that will take. Or any medical help on how to do that.
