Stroke Prevention and Rehabilitation

Stroke Prevention and Rehabilitation

About 200,000 strokes per year in America occur in people who have previously experienced one or more strokes. Thus, stroke prevention is vital to stroke rehabilitation.

Research shows improvements in preventing another stroke through modifications in behavior and pharmaceutical interventions. Stroke survivors often speak with their doctors about what types of supervised behavior modifications are essential in order to decrease the effects of risk factors.

Our in-home care in Florida that provides post-stroke care finds the following as the most common treatable risk factors of stroke:

  • Hypertension
    It is important to control high blood pressure to prevent strokes from recurring. Changes in one’s diet and taking prescribed medicines help lower blood pressure levels.
  • Smoking
    Smoking increases the risk of stroke and links to the buildup of fatty substances in the arteries. It also raises blood pressure levels and makes the blood thicker.
  • Regular Exercise
    Obesity and inactivity are associated with diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Being overweight increases the risk of ischemic stroke
  • Cholesterol
    Be sure to lower your cholesterol level as increased levels can lead to atherosclerosis, thereby reducing the amount of blood and oxygen to the brain.
  • Heart Disease and Diabetes
    Have regular checkups, especially on your heart health and sugar levels. Heart disorders can result in blood clots that may block vessels in, leading to the brain. Diabetes can cause destructive changes in blood vessels, including those in the brain.

When a stroke happens, medical attention is urgently required. Emergency stroke treatment can limit damage to the brain, possibly making rehabilitation less extensive. However, some stroke survivors may still need assistance in doing daily living tasks at home. Thus, our home care services in Port St. Lucie, Florida, are available.
