When a patient suffers a stroke, fast treatment is the initial focus. More and more brain cells die with every passing second, so getting a stroke victim stabilized in the emergency room is the first order of business. However, once the stroke is over, the discussion turns to recovery. Stroke recovery is different for each patient, as it depends on the nature and severity of the damage sustained. Patients may need help with everything from speech to walking. The Stroke Center at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota can help with vital stroke care during the attack and a rehabilitation plan afterwards. Strokes strike 700,000 victims each year, so please share this vital information about recovery with as many people as you can.
