Acute treatments for stroke or paraplegia as well as long term treatments to reduce symptoms and restore function.
Available treatment for brain stem stroke
Stroke and paraplegia can have a severe impact on your quality of life. Stroke is also life threatening in some circumstances. We offer a range of treatments for both conditions.
Our stroke treatments involve surgical treatments to repair blood vessels or remove clots. This is delivered in our state-of-the-art facilities which includes a specialist intensive care unit staffed by neurosurgeons, neurologists, and other specialists. We take a multidisciplinary approach to treating stroke which includes developing treatment plans to aid recovery over the long term.
Our paraplegia treatments are typically administered by specialist physical therapists. The aim of these treatments is to build up your strength and endurance as well as reducing stiffness and improving coordination. We also help reduce unwanted movements or twitching, plus we help you manage your bladder and bowel functions. Sometimes wheelchairs and other assistive devices are used to increase your mobility.
In general, the benefits of our brain stem stroke treatment include:
- Treating the immediate effects of stroke to reduce the risk of long term damage or death
- Reduce symptoms and improve function
- Increase mobility
- Improve quality of life
