STROKE:

A stroke is when the blood flow to the brain is impaired or cut off. Without this imperative blood flow, your brain is deprived of vital oxygen and nutrients, and within minutes the brain cells start to die.

When brain cells die during a stroke, the area affected is damaged and the abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost. Depending upon the location of the brain damaged, it will result in things such as a loss in memory and muscle function.

How exactly someone is affected is all relative to where in the brain the stroke occurs and how much damage has transpired. Read more...

Multiple Sclerosis (MS):

MS is a disease of the central nervous system that causes your immune system to attack or “eat away at” the protective shield of your nerves. This attack creates a disruption to the flow of information within the brain, and the flow between the brain and the body.

Because this is a disease to the Central Nervous System, just about any function of the body could be negatively affected. The most commonly found symptoms are staggering fatigue, weakness, balance problems, altered sensation, and difficulties with mobility. Read more...

PARKINSON’S DISEASE (PD):

PD is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremors, otherwise known as trembling or shaking.

This disorder is caused when specific nerve cells in the brain slowly break down or die. These nerve cells are responsible for producing Dopamine, which is a chemical messenger for your brain. When the dopamine levels decrease, the messengers for the brain are decreased resulting in abnormal brain activity resulting in the presence of the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.

The most prevalent symptoms are 1.) Trembling of the extremities, jaw, and face; 2.) Slowed movement and changes to mobility; 3.) Rigidity, or stiffness of the muscles causing limited range of motion and pain; 4.) Impaired balance, coordination, and posture. Read more...
