Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the 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:

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's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Ankle strengthening walking

In order to get in my 10,000 steps a day I have to hit the trails from 5pm til 6:30 when it is already dark. With a couple of inches of snow on the ground I have no idea what the footing is like as I step. It could be a frozen lump of snow, a branch, or just leaves. This requires you to instantly determine how to adjust you foot, ankle and legs to stay upright. On the last couple hundred yards I'm walking on a trail that slopes to the left. This requires my left ankle to be strong enough not to roll and become sprained.  Last night I saw two deer and a turkey running down the trail. You might be able to see turkey prints in the snow. I got in 8,000 steps in 1.5 hours.
Don't do this on your own.
