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.

Spasticity Treatment Tool

More useless crapola from the National Stroke Association. I don't want my spasticity managed I want it cured. Talk to survivors sometime, you'll get an earful.

Spasticity is one of the most common post-stroke conditions experienced by stroke survivors. If left untreated, it can decrease the survivor’s quality of life and increase caregiver burden.
To find the right treatment, it is important that an open dialogue is established between the healthcare provider and the survivor/caregiver. This dialogue tool is designed to educate you, as well as support an honest and productive conversation between you and your healthcare provider.
Spasticity Management Options
This list provides possible treatment options, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. Discuss these options with your healthcare provider to determine your best course of action.
