Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 14365 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

Changes in arm-hand function and arm-hand skill performance in patients after stroke during and after rehabilitation
rehabilitation programs applied in stroke rehabilitation frequently
target specific populations and thus are less applicable in
heterogeneous patient populations. Besides, changes in arm-hand function
(AHF) and arm-hand skill performance (AHSP) during and after a specific
and well-described rehabilitation treatment are often not well
single-armed prospective cohort study featured three subgroups of
stroke patients with either a severely, moderately or mildly impaired
AHF. Rehabilitation treatment consisted of a Concise_Arm_and_hand_
Rehabilitation_Approach_in_Stroke (CARAS). Measurements at function and
activity level were performed at admission, clinical discharge, 3, 6, 9
and 12 months after clinical discharge.
stroke patients (M/F:63/23; mean age:57.6yr (+/-10.6); post-stroke
time:29.8 days (+/-20.1)) participated. All patients improved on AHF and
arm-hand capacity during and after rehabilitation, except on grip
strength in the severely affected subgroup. Largest gains occurred in
patients with a moderately affected AHF. As to self-perceived AHSP, on
average, all subgroups improved over time. A small percentage of
patients declined regarding self-perceived AHSP post-rehabilitation.
majority of stroke patients across the whole arm-hand impairment
severity spectrum significantly improved on AHF, arm-hand capacity and
self-perceived AHSP. These were maintained up to one year
post-rehabilitation. Results may serve as a control condition in future
