Post-Stroke Rehabilitation

According to the National Stroke Association, a stroke is a “brain attack” that can happen to anyone at anytime. Strokes occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain, such as memory and muscle control, are lost.

It is important to be aware of post-stroke symptoms that linger way beyond the initial event. After a stroke, a survivor will experience physical conditions, emotional changes, and cognitive challenges. The most common effects of a stroke are physical, including seizures, paralysis, chronic pain, and fatigue. A stroke can cause detrimental changes to a person’s body well after the initial attack. 

Recovery after a stroke is about getting back to usual life and living as independent a life as possible. It involves taking an active approach to make sure that your life goes on, while adapting to limit and post-diagonal conditions. With great care and restoration, there is life after stroke. 

Adjustable Beds Can Assist With Stroke Recovery

Multiple medical studies have documented that adjustable bed bases, such as those provided by Ergomotion, can have beneficial effects in aiding recovery from stroke. Stroke survivors often suffer a variety of post-stroke effects, such as blood circulation, chronic pain, regaining independence, and bed sores; an Ergomotion adjustable base can help alleviate these effects.
