New therapeutic approaches seek to harness the body's immune system to protect against brain damage after strokes

In this episode of Optimal Health Weekly we discuss brain strokes. Our guest is a therapist who specializes in the treatment of brain stroke can help stroke survivors regain their former patterns of thinking and emotional responses. Occupational therapists
can help people cope with the loss of sensory functions, which may result in weakened muscle tone. They can help patients regain their motor skills. These therapists can also help patients adjust to the loss of emotion. This article focuses on occupational therapy.

Ischemic Stroke vs Hemorrhagic Stroke

After a thorough physical examination and history, a clinical diagnosis of a stroke is made. A healthcare professional should be able to recognize the symptoms of a stroke within an hour. In most cases, a stroke can be life-threatening if there is a haemorrhage into the brainstem or surrounding tissue.

Who Are at Risk for Stroke?

A stroke specialist may perform a physical examination and history to determine the cause of
the symptoms. A speedy diagnosis is essential to limiting the damage to brain tissue.
During a physical exam, the healthcare professional will ask the patient's medical
history, including a history of slurring words or speech since the evening before. If the symptoms persist for more than
an hour, a physician may consider a surgical procedure to repair the blood vessel.

An early diagnosis of a stroke is crucial for the recovery. The sooner a
person is diagnosed with a stroke, the better. A healthcare professional will learn the
patient's history and determine whether or not they have been slurring their words for the
last hour or since the stroke. Regardless of the location, if symptoms resolve within 24
hours, the patient is considered to be suffering from a transient ischemic attack.
