Stroke Treatment and Rehabilitation
Here, we approach stroke treatment and rehabilitation very seriously and thoroughly. Stroke is known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), cerebrovascular insult (CVI), or brain attack.
Stroke results from poor blood flow to the brain resulting in a severe decrease in brain cell function or cell death. There are two main types of stroke. First, there is an ischemic stroke due to a lack of blood flow from a blockage. Then, there is a hemorrhagic stroke which results in bleeding from a vessel rupture.
Furthermore, there is usually a slow decline in brain function for many years before the actual “stroke” occurs.
What is Stroke Treatment and Rehabilitation?
Stroke rehabilitation is the process by which those with disabling strokes undergo therapy to help them return to everyday life as much as possible. Unfortunately, popular treatments employed in rehabilitation do not focus on restoring brain function to normal. Primarily, they focus on relearning skills of everyday living and teaching stroke patients to “live with their disabilities.”
Usually, after acute care in the hospital (initial 30 to 60 days after stroke), the patient is given “rehabilitative therapy.” Additionally, the physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech therapist are available. However, medical physicians are not aware that most of these therapists only receive 4-8 hours of training in neurology.
Education & Experience in Stroke Treatment
Chiropractic (Functional) Neurologists receive hundreds of hours of training in neurology. Furthermore, this training focuses specifically on “brain-based neurological rehabilitation” to restore the patient’s brain functions. As a result, Dr. Furnish has over 45,000 hours of clinical experience in this type of neurological rehabilitation. In addition to more than two decades of experience.
