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:

Dr. Lara Boyd, physical therapist and neuroscientist, describes neuroplasticity at TEDxVancouver.

A good general description but still no specific explanation of why a neuron will drop its current function and take on a neighboring neurons function. No explanation of how this occurs. So once again you are completely on your own to figure out how to get neuroplasticity to work for you.  She follows the failed route of trying to fix stroke problems after the damage is done rather than stopping the 5 causes of the neuronal cascade of death killing millions of neurons in the first week.
