A stroke is a type of brain attack resulting from the deprivation of oxygen and nutrients to the brain. When this happens, brain cells begin to die. A stroke can occur when a blood vessel that supplies the brain with oxygen and nutrients is blocked by a blood clot. A stroke can also be a result of uncontrolled bleeding in the brain. To date, no cure for stroke has been discovered. However, strokes can be managed depending on the type of stroke and its stage. Immediate medical attention is required because the longer you wait, the more brain cells die. So, it is always recommended to seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
However, there are many ways we can manage the after-effects of a stroke to get the best out of it. You should avoid any activity or drug that can trigger another stroke. Exercise regularly, eat healthily, and manage stress. If you have just had a stroke, then take it easy. You can try physical therapy, which may help you get better faster. Remember to make the right health decisions and take control of your health.
Sometimes, the use of certain drugs can help reduce the extent of brain damage caused by the stroke.
