Strokes, also known as “brain attacks” occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, interrupting blood flow to the brain. This is bad news, as the lack of blood flow causes brain cells to die, which negatively affects the person’s ability to perform abilities that the affected part of the brain once knew. Strokes can result in disabilities with speech, movement, or memory.
With the help of rehabilitation services from physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech/language pathologists, stroke victims can sometimes regain and refine any skills they once had – however this process could take months to years depending on the severity of brain damage. This Q & A Fact Sheet from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke provides information on post-stroke rehabilitation, types of disabilities resulting from stroke, medical professionals that can help with rehabilitation, and more.
