Stroke (cerebrovascular accident, or CVA) rehabilitation

Stroke (cerebrovascular accident, or CVA) rehabilitation

Institute’s cognitive rehabilitation department, among other
things, is engaged in the rehabilitation of people who suffered a
CVA. When a CVA or a stoke takes place, it creates a disconnection of
the brain blood supply, as the result of a sudden blockage that
prevents the blood from flowing freely.

our viewpoint

stroke generally occurs suddenly, completely changing the patients’
life due to injury of their cognitive abilities, immediately
affecting their functioning levels. The injury generally has a
significant effect over the patients’ quality of life, and the
quality of life of the people around them.

can be divided into two categories:

” Ischemic stroke – caused as a result of a blockage in the artery that supplies blood to the brain, by a blood clot. This is the type of CVA leading to most injuries. “

stroke – caused as a result
of a leak in the brain’s blood vessels, mostly as a result of
untreated high blood pressure, or as a result of damage to the wall
of the blood vessel. This type is far rarer, and leads to a smaller
percentage of injuries.
