In modern medicine there are two ways to stroke care: preventive treatment and treatment of symptoms of the consequences of this disease. First of all, note that both types of treatment are carried out only in a hospital under the supervision of skilled professionals, especially in the first month after stroke.
Treatment involves a course of vascular therapy, oxygen therapy, and medications that improve brain function, as well as physiotherapy and massages. Great value in combating the effects of stroke has a mental factor: the mood of the patient, his desire to get better, the complete exclusion of all that may disturb, upset or too good tidings to the patient. As for the food, it is necessary to review: avoid cigarettes, coffee, tea, alcohol; to minimize the use of oil, meat and sugar.
After intensive treatment in the hospital can continue rehabilitation at home. If there are no contraindications, the patient can do massages. Start massaging from the neck and move to the waist, as if drawing circles on the back, pressing his fingers. The massage should last about half an hour. To do it in the morning and evening.
Physiotherapy is also possible to do at home. It will help to return to the previous state motor function. Preferable breathing and restorative exercises. These kinds of exercises can only be determined by the attending physician.
Water treatment is another effective method of self-struggle with the consequences of stroke. Varieties of these procedures, mass. Consider some of them:
1. Steam baths. This kind of procedures meant for head. To do this, boil some water and add a couple tablespoons of dill seed. The patient should undress to the waist and sitting on the bed, holding his head over a pot of broth and cover it with a blanket, inhale the steam for fifteen minutes.
2. The rubbing. This kind of water treatment is even easier than the previous one. For it will need a hard towel, which must be dipped in cold water, a good squeeze and vigorously RUB the patient within two minutes. Wipe dry after that you should not.
How quickly a patient recovers after a stroke depends on many factors: the individual characteristics of the organism, on the mood of the patient, the severity of his condition, but more from the treatment and attentive care.
