REHABILITATION AFTER A STROKE

Has your loved one had a stroke? Does he feel helpless, can’t do without somebody’s help? Do you seek a way out of this situation and try to return him to a normal life?

Comprehensive rehabilitation in the rehabilitation department of clinic "Aksimed" will help to make the first step on the road to recovery after a stroke. Under the supervision of experienced medical staff, you can acquire skills, which provoked the brain damage. The rehabilitation team of our department is highly neurologists, massage therapists, physical therapists, specialists in physical rehabilitation (occupational therapists and kinesiotherapists), speech therapists, neuropsychologists, specially trained nurses. They will assist in the recovery of lost functions and create a strong motivation to recovery.

Our department treats patients who experienced a stroke. They do not get disappointed and are not willing to put up with the circumstances occurring after the disease. We have developed a set of exercises and procedures at your desire and persistent work to help overcome post-stroke handicap.

Rehabilitation of patients after stroke in sanatoria general is often not effective enough. All this is due to the fact that in such institutions there is no modern technical base, and besides, they are constantly overloaded with patients with the most diverse pathologies. Post-stroke recovery is quite differently treated in clinic “Aksimed”: we carefully study each case, identify the extent of brain damage, assess the patient's condition after stroke (stiffness and limitation of movement, memory loss, speech disorders) and find an individual approach to each patient. The basic method of rehabilitation of such patients with impaired movements (ataxia, static, paresis) is a physiotherapy, which allows partial or complete recovery of function of balance, agility, strength, range of motion and self-help skills. Also shown are the courses of massage and physiotherapy. The course of recovery is completed with comprehensive drug therapy. An important step in the rehabilitation of a training condition, and then walking. The first is walking on the ground, then - in the ward, drawing on the bedside frame, and then walking on their own, relying on a cane or stick. To try walking without a cane can be possible only at a slight cut of the legs and good balance.

Also post-stroke patients need to gradually restore self and other household skills. First, it is the easiest self-help skills learning: personal hygiene, self-eating, and then the self-dressing (which is quite difficult with paralyzed limbs), using the bathroom and toilet. More than a third of stroke patients have speech disorders: dysarthria and aphasia. Basis of speech rehabilitation of this pathology is the classroom with a speech therapist. An essential part of stroke rehabilitation is the professional help of psychologists to cope with patient's and his close circle emotional disorders and depression. It is important to start rehabilitation after stroke as soon as possible because this depends on the forecast recovery of lost functions as well as returning back to normal life. The most effective rehabilitation is of those patients who asked for help in the first 6 months after disease. The duration of rehabilitation in our department can take from several days to months. But, regardless of the remoteness of the disease, experienced professionals will determine for every single person, who has applied for help, the individual potential rehabilitation. We will help you to achieve the best possible results.
