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.
My back ground story is here:

Nothing in here points to any protocols. It is all just general guidelines crap.

Stroke can have different clinical characteristics and consequences, with unequal disability and outcome, thus demanding individual approach, specific skills and general knowledge. Treatment of stroke has significantly improved during the last twenty years, mainly because of clinical and experimental studies, adequate medicamentous therapy, and the use of new technologies as well. Use-dependent rehabilitation strategy includes repetitive training with proper adjustment of the program. Other rehabilitation practices should also be incorporated, such as self-care, recreation, and home-based activities. Motivation of the patients, improving quality of life, functional independence, activities of daily life are crucial. Holistic approach means that the patient as a whole should be considered and treated. Scientific evidence is sufficient to confirm the necessity of physical rehabilitation of patients after stroke in order to achieve the optimal results. Current evidence on the effect of physical therapy in stroke rehabilitation is presented.
