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:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal.

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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

DEBUNKED: The Odd Myth That Chiropractors Cause Strokes Revisited

1 in 1-2 million chance is still too fucking high. I will never have my neck adjusted/cracked.  He never pointed to the RAND study that supposedly proved his point.  His protestations to the contrary, nothing he stated is convincing.  Excuses, excuses; CT scan costs too much, medical doctors don't catch the artery trauma either.  The adjustment probably tore loose the clot that formed from the initial trauma. So he is bypassing the whole cause because he is focusing on the original cause of the trauma, NOT the cause of loosening the clot.
This week, we are tackling a myth that has run rampant for years and I hope to once and for all dispel it. The myth is that Chiropractors Cause Strokes. The information could not be clearer on this and we’re going to show it to you in a way that you can understand and in a way that allows you to show it to others. I’m done with this Chiropractors Cause Strokes myth, folks!
Debunking the Chiropractors Cause Strokes Myth

Unfortunately, you have often read, watched, or heard me complaining about how our profession has been historically attacked by those organizations in charge of the medical profession. I hope those paying attention understand the fact that this is not just sour grapes.

It is education.

Rather watch on YouTube? Click below!
It has been proven in the courts that medical associations and organizations aligned together to force Chiropractic out of business. When we talk about profession validation, the history of our invalidation is incredibly important.
I continually bring these facts up in my articles, videos, and podcast because many of the things we talk about have their roots in our history, in the attacks our profession has sustained, and in the attacks our profession is currently battling.
From the start, let me state that research simply does NOT support the “Chiropractors Cause Strokes” myth.
Through the RAND Institute, it is estimated that a serious, adverse reaction (such as stroke as a result to a chiropractic adjustment alone) happens in approximately 1 out of every 1 million treatments. Keep in mind the “1 out of every 1-2 million” number as you read through this article.
Let’s put that finding into perspective by comparing it to some other odds.
  • The odds of being struck and killed by lightning is 1 in 174,426 according to the National Safety Council.
  • The odds of being told to “Come on down,” on The Price Is Right is 1 in 36!
  • The odds of being born with 11 fingers or toes is 1 in 500.
  • The odds of dying from a firearms assault is 1 in 113.
  • How about this one: the odds of winning an Oscar are 1 in 11,500.
