What is a Stroke?

A stroke is sometimes called a brain attack. The problem is with the amount of blood in your brain. The cause of one type of stroke? ischemic stroke' is too little blood in the brain. The cause of the other main type of stroke? hemorrhagic stroke' is too much blood within the skull. Damage to the brain can cause loss of speech, vision, or movement in an arm or a leg, depending on the part of the brain that is affected.

Rehab using Mirror Box Therapy

Studies have shown that rehabilitation of stroke patients can be dramatically improved by integrating physical and mental practice. By utilizing mirrors to trick patients' brains into thinking that they were moving their hand or limb. Mirror Box therapy can help to achieve this.

It may seem bizarre that something as simple as a mirror can be used to get your hand going again but it's true. In order to rehabilitate your hand you need to reactivate the wiring between your brain and your hand. This is why people who have had a stroke are encouraged to have and persevere with physiotherapy.

Post Stroke Rehabilitation Exercises

Mirror therapy provides a visual feed back that is thought to encourage the wiring system to both get moving again and to activate spare or sleepy pathways that have until then been dormant, to contribute to your recovery.

The patient places the affected limb in side the mirror box and their unaffected limb in front of the mirror. Seeing the reflection of the unaffected limb and performing simple tasks such as unclenching of the fist or circular motion of the arm, the patient thus receives artificial visual feedback from the unaffected limb in a mirror, thought it appears they are moving their affected limb. In addition, patients should imagine that they are moving their paralyzed limb.

Improvements come with repeated exercises. This is why a portable, collapsible and lightweight Mirror box is an invaluable tool in your recovery, allowing you to do your rehabilitation exercises wherever and whenever you wish.

Patients who have used this technique have shown an improvement in the motor function. Scans using Magnetic Resonance Imagery (MRI) have shown that motor imagery can result in an increased functionality within the brain.

The rate and amount of recovery after stroke much depends on the extent of the damage to the brain, and the intensity and duration of the therapy you receive. Recovery also is likely to be influenced by personality, life experiences and coping styles. Motivation to recover is a key factor in obtaining an optimal level of rehabilitation.

Although stroke-related disabilities can be permanent, many people lead active lives after a stroke.

Many are able to resume everyday life and responsibilities
