Primary Stroke Program

A cerebrovascular accident (CVA), commonly known as stroke is caused due to a sudden loss in the functioning of human brain. This is caused due to a lack of blood supply to the brain cells. A stroke can happen due to numerous reasons such as thrombosis, ischemia, hemorrhage or arterial embolism. The stroke usually renders a portion of the brain useless. Which means one portion of the body loses functionality.

A primary stroke program comprises an association of several experts from different medical fields. The program aims at early rehabilitation of those already suffering from a stroke. Potential patients can also benefit from a primary stroke program by gaining knowledge on the various aspects of the stroke and how to react when facing an onset of stroke.
