Stroke

What is a stroke?

A stroke occurs when part of the blood supply to the brain is cut off. This causes damage and death to some brain cells which can affect how the body works physically. It can also change how you think and feel.

There are different types of stroke:

  • Transient ischaemic attack (TIA)- Also known as a ‘mini stroke’. It presents like a stroke but the effects only last for a limited time. This is because the blockage is only temporary.
  • Ischaemic- caused by a blockage cutting off the blood supply to the brain. This is the most common type of stroke
  • Haemorrhagic- Caused by a bleed within (Intracerebral) or on the surface (Subarachnoid) of the brain. The bleed happens when an artery bursts.

How Does Neurotherapy Treatment Work?

Neurotherapy Process

We hold a brief conversation with you about what problems you struggle with and how you need help

We capture your personal details, discuss the costs and timings and arrange an appointment

During your first appointment, you share your goals with us and we conduct a physical assessment

We work with you to build a personalised treatment plan, during a scheduled period of intervention

We may prescribe some exercises to help you to address weakness, move more efficiently and improve your quality of life

We regularly review your progress and adjust your goals as you make improvements
