A stroke occurs when the brain's blood supply is interrupted. Without oxygen and nutrients from the blood, brain cells start to die rapidly. Left undiagnosed or untreated, it can result in serious and debilitating injury with loss of function or even loss of life. Stroke is a Brain Attack!
People who survive a stroke may suffer serious, long-term disabilities.Stroke damage can result in paralysis, numbness, imbalance, and difficulty communicating. While there is no way to reverse the effects of stroke, it is possible to regain lost function. Kent's experienced rehabilitation therapists help stroke survivors restore independent and productive lives.
