Stroke Treatment in Charlotte, North Carolina

Strokes are a leading cause of death and long-term disability in America today. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, depriving the brain of the necessary oxygen and nutrients. This can damage or destroy brain cells, leading to various neurological symptoms, including paralysis, cognitive impairment, and loss of speech. Post-stroke rehabilitation is essential as symptoms of strokes can be mild or severe and short or long-term. 

How Can Functional Neurology Help Stroke Rehabilitation?

Functional Neurology focuses on the concept of neuroplasticity, which refers to the brain's capacity to adjust and form new connections in response to learning or injury. This ability remains intact even after a stroke, and our clinic aims to utilize it to promote functional recovery and regain lost abilities without invasive procedures. Using targeted therapies and exercises that engage specific neural pathways, we strive to facilitate the rewiring of the brain and enhance the connection between the brain and body following a stroke. Our interventions, from gait retraining to rehabilitating fine motor skills, are carefully crafted to achieve this goal.

 

Stroke Treatment: Early Intervention is Key

It is important to start treatment early for patients who have had a stroke. The brain has the ability to change and heal after a stroke, and this is called neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is strongest right after a stroke when the brain is trying to adapt and recover. Early treatment can help people regain their ability to move and control their bodies. It can also improve memory and attention.

 

Early treatment can also prevent other problems like pneumonia or blood clots. If left untreated, symptoms can get worse over time. Fortunately, targeted brain treatment can help strengthen weakening areas in the brain, improve functionality, working memory, language processing, and motor coordination, and provide a better quality of life for many suffering from stroke.

 

We understand the importance of early intervention for post-stroke at Better Brain & Body and are here to help. We understand the neurological complications of post-stroke symptoms and are dedicated to helping you on your road to recovery. We use state-of-the-art technologies to assess how your brain is functioning. We aim to optimize brain function through our innovative examination and treatment strategies. Our doctors and staff will work with you and your family to create an optimum care plan for you and your brain.

Our Approach to Stroke Treatment 

From the perspective of a functional neurology clinic, the importance of receiving proper care after a stroke cannot be emphasized enough. Post-stroke care is critical in a patient's journey to recovery, and our clinic is dedicated to providing comprehensive and individualized support. We recognize that every stroke survivor has unique challenges and goals; our doctors recognize this to design tailored rehabilitation programs. These programs are designed to restore physical functions and optimize brain plasticity, harnessing the brain's remarkable capacity for healing and adaptation.

 

Our approach encompasses non-invasive rehabilitative exercises, sensory stimulation, vestibular rehabilitation, and cognitive training, all aimed at enhancing the patient's overall well-being and quality of life. Proper post-stroke care is the cornerstone of a successful recovery, allowing our patients to rebuild their lives with confidence, independence, and renewed hope.
