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.

The association between fear of falling and smoothness of lower trunk oscillation in gait varies according to gait speed in community-dwelling older adults

What is your protocol for fall prevention and testing your recovery from perturbations?  With nothing from your medical team they have effectively sentenced you to die.

Falls are leading cause of injury and death in older Americans

As per this study, fear of falling (FoF)–related changes in gait vary with gait speed. Lower trunk oscillation was less smooth in the lateral direction when they walked at their usual pace in older adults with FoF. Likewise, when they walked at a faster pace than their usual walking speed lower trunk oscillation was also less smooth in the direction of travel.
