How Stroke Affects an Individual 

The human brain is a wonder of nature. It controls every organ in the body. That says a lot about how vital its health is to the overall working of our system. When a person suffers a stroke, it causes significant damage to the brain, and its effects can manifest differently in different people.  However, these are some of the impacts of stroke:

  • Difficulty speaking
  • Issues with language skills
  • Vision problems are common
  • Mobility and balance problems
  • Difficulty swallowing food
  • Partial paralysis

While there are many other health concerns that stroke victims can have, these are the most common. Excellent medical treatments like the ones that we at Radar Medical offer, help you get back on your feet at a steady pace. Dr. Shah is a renowned neurologist, and patients from far and wide come to him for treatment.

He is exceptionally well-respected in the medical field, and many doctors and health specialists refer their patients to him. Once the patient has stabilized and has the strength to tolerate therapy, the doctor will chalk out a tailored treatment plan for them.

Adjustments That Patients Need To Make After a Stroke

A stroke can change the quality of a person’s life significantly. Many patients find it challenging to come to terms with these changes. Since they are unable to carry out the simplest of activities without assistance, it makes them feel overwhelmed and frustrated. Sleep issues, memory impairment, depression, incontinence, and fatigue are some of the long lists of mental and physical problems that patients have to deal with after a stroke.

Since this is a very challenging phase for the patient, Dr. Shah recommends that they should never delay treatment and rehabilitation. The latter has to take place within three to six months of the stroke as it improves the chances of success considerably. In addition to any treatment that Dr. Shah provides at the best neurology clinic in Las Vegas, NV, Radar Medical, some other resources that the patient might need include:

  • Physical therapist
  • Speech therapist
  • Psychologist
