Do you suffer from any of these challenges?

  • Pain

  • Limited range of motion

  • Problems walking

  • Lack of strength and endurance

  • Lack of sensation in the limbs

  • Paralysis

Often these can be improved with expert physiotherapy and exercise.

A stroke happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted. As a result brain cells get less of the oxygen and nutrients that they need. Some brain cells can become damaged and others can die. This can cause different effects depending on where it happens in your brain.

There are two types of stroke:

  • Ischaemic stroke - this type of stroke occurs when a blood clot blocks one of the arteries that carries blood to the brain. About 85 in every 100 strokes are ischaemic.

 

  • Haemorrhagic stroke - this type of stroke occurs as a result of bleeding from a burst blood vessel, in or around the brain. About 15 in every 100 strokes are haemorrhagic.

 

 

A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is similar to a stroke, but the symptoms do not last longer than 24 hours.
