Stroke occurs when there is lack of blood flow to the brain. There are several types of strokes and the impairment in the body will directly correlate with the area of the brain which was damaged by the stroke. Most commonly, a stroke will occur after the age of 65 and when someone has elevated blood pressure. Diabetes can also increase the risk of stroke as well.

A stroke will occur when a thrombosis (blood clot) breaks loose from inside the blood vessels and get stuck somewhere in the brain. The second type of stroke is from a plaque (calcium) which has accumulated in blood vessels due to a vascular injury like high blood pressure, injury and or inflammation in the cardiovascular system.

Jugular artery stroke affects the front of your brain and your motor strips which will cause loss of function to the opposite side of the body which the stroke occurred on, poor speech, and reduce executive function (organizing, counting, reading, finding words etc.) Basilar artery strokes occur in the back of the brain and can affect the brain stem which controls all of the autonomic functions in the body like breathing, swallowing, heart beating, and digestion. Functions that you do not intentionally control. Basilar artery strokes can also impact eye function. The eyes are controlled by the back of the brain in the occipital lobe. This can results in partial to complete loss of vision and can often times cause paralysis of the muscles which control the eye which results in double vision. 

Stroke prevention is much more important than treating stroke symptoms. Most stroke symptoms are permanent and will not resolve because the brain does not heal well, and once brain cells (glia) have lack of oxygen, they die off.  

One of the most important things you can do to prevent a stroke is to consume an anti-inflammatory diet, get adequate sleep (8 hours), mild to moderate exercise 3-5 times a week and controlling blood pressure and blood sugar.

Setting up a consultation is the best option for anyone who has questions about a stroke.
