What is The Stroke Recovery Timeline?

A number one concern immediately after a stroke for patients, their relatives and their caregivers is the stroke recovery timeline. Unfortunately predicting accurate recovery time is harder than it sounds. Many models of prediction attempt to estimate the probability of a patient achieving a specific benchmark, but of course this is influenced by the treatment regime or patient characteristics. The stroke recovery timeline can be influenced for the better if the patient is under taking proper stroke rehabilitation, unfortunately this is often not the case.

Stroke is the third largest cause of death and disability in America. The post stroke period which entails stroke rehabilitation is critical for influencing the stroke recovery timeline. Stroke rehabilitation plays a crucial role in helping survivors relearn the skills that were lost due to the stroke. Restoring any form of independence can really transform the lives of the individual and those around them. If a stroke survivor can regain independence of skills such as being mobile, getting out of bed in the morning, dressing themselves and feeding themselves, this can go a long way to improve their quality of life.

There are two kinds of strokes, they are called ischemic and hemorrhagic. An ischemic stroke can be caused by a blood clot or narrowing of the arteries and results in reducing or cutting off of the blood supply to the brain. A hemorrhagic stroke results from the rupture of a blood vessel to the brain and this also results in a decrease blood supply to the brain.

Factors That Determine The Stroke Recovery Timeline

The stroke recovery timeline will of course be influenced by the severity of the stroke and the complications arising out of it, plus the type of stroke rehab used. There is unfortunately nothing we can do about the first factor of the severity of the stroke. What has happened has happened. But we can concentrate and change the other aspect which is the stroke rehab part. In fact this is the only part we have real influence over, so if you want to improve your stroke recovery timeline then this is where to put your energies into.

Unfortunately this is the area where I see so many people failing or being disappointed with their stroke recovery results and hence their stroke recovery timeline. Most individuals never get exposed to the latest and best stroke rehabilitation methods. Often these are reserved for lucky individuals in clinical trials or who are fortunate to have the finances to access these treatments. Many therapists and rehab centers don’t even use these techniques. This is very sad. It also leads to a lot of anger and frustration on the part of stroke survivors and their families.

Sure you cannot escape the stroke recovery timeline with some magical miracle cure, but there are certainly more effective and efficient methods of performing your rehab that could shorten your stroke recovery timeline. I am talking about cutting edge stroke rehab exercises and an approach to stroke rehab that could push the boundaries of your potential.
