What is a stroke?
Stokes occur when there is a disruption of the blood flow to the vessels in the brain. This can happen through a clot blocking the blood or a bleed from the vessels themselves.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms after a stroke vary hugely. This can range from limb weakness, sensory changes, cognitive problems and speech impairment.
How can it be treated?
Recovery from a stroke depends on the severity but is often exercise based and can include several different types of therapists to help return to as close to the previous level of function as possible.
