Causes

A stroke is a type of medical emergency that occurs when the blood supply is cut off from the brain. People who smoke, who have high cholesterol and who are obese are at higher risk of having a stroke compared to the rest of the population. Controlling for risk factors and staying healthy can help patients avoid a stroke.  

Chiropractic Treatment for Stroke Victims

There are many treatments that chiropractors use to help stroke victims recover. Some of the methods that chiropractors use include:

  • Stretches and exercises. Certain types of stretches and exercises can help stroke victims to regain use of muscles a stroke occurs. Chiropractors help stroke victims regain normal use of their limbs, bladder, bowel and the muscles used to swallow. 
  • Nutrition counseling. Nutrition plays a big role in a patient's health during recovery. Eating right can help patients regain or maintain mental clarity. In addition, many have trouble swallowing and eating, which can impact patient nutrition. Counseling from a chiropractor can address the patient's nutrition needs.  

Prevention

Chiropractors can help patients prevent a stroke from ever occurring, and for patients who have already had a stroke, chiropractors help patients avoid another stroke in the future. Lifestyle advice from a chiropractor helps patients avoid risk factors that could put patients at a high risk for a stroke. Spinal adjustment helps patients stay physically active and strong. In addition, chiropractors teach patients to do stretches and exercises that can help them safely manage conditions that might put them at higher risk for stroke.
