Neuro – Rehabilitation Physiotherapy At Osteorehab
What exactly is Stroke?
Stroke (Cerebrovascular Accident/ CVA) is the sudden loss of neurological function caused by an interruption of the blood flow to the brain.
Types of Stroke:
● Ischemic is the most common type, affecting about 80% of the individuals with stroke, and results when a clot blocks or impairs blood flow, depriving the brain of essential oxygen and nutrients.
● Haemorrhagic Stroke occurs when blood vessels rupture, causing leakage of blood in or around the brain.
To be classified as stroke, neurological deficits must persist for more at least 24 hrs.
Recovering from a stroke can be one of the greatest challenges a person will ever face. However, research shows that early and specialized stroke rehabilitation can help to optimize an individual's physical and cognitive recovery and enhance quality of life.

PNF Approach for Stroke :

The PNF concept provides us with many tools - such as verbal and visual input, tactile information and techniques like rhythmic initiation, combining of isotonics and replication – to give the patient information about these activities that has been proved to be .
At the structural level, we treat a patient, in a supine position on a table. But at the activity level, we bring the patient to an environment that is optimal for this activity.
Only by practicing the activity in a meaningful context, with and without feedback, with and without repetition, and by variability in practice, will the patient be able to reach an optimal functional performance of any activity.
