Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain! trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 523 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.My back ground story is here:http://oc1dean.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-background-story_8.html

Only 10% of stroke patients that survive fully recover; What the hell is your stroke hospital doing to change that for the better?

If nothing then I suggest firings start at the top with the board of directors. 

Oops, once again Dean you are suggesting you know more than the stroke world. It is only arrogance if you don't know what you are talking about, I know what I'm talking about, fully referenced. 

Flint Rehab while wonderful pooh poohs the 10% full recovery statistic.

This begs the question, exactly how close can you or your loved one get to a full recovery?
The American Stroke Association states that 10% of stroke survivors recover almost completely and 25% recover with minor impairments.
The stroke rehabilitation field is rapidly advancing, though. With better rehabilitation facilities and home therapy tools, patients can often recover more function than they could in previous decades.
Try not to feel discouraged by a 10% chance of a full recovery from stroke. While it’s the only widely accepted statistic, it was produced at an unknown date through unknown survey criteria.
Focusing on the statistics can deplete your hope, and hope is a valuable, essential resource during stroke recovery.
Instead, shift your focus on what you can control. There are many steps you can take to maximize your chances of a full recovery and get yourself into that supposed 10%.
