What is Neuroplasticity: Guidelines for Stroke Recovery

Neuroplasticity is the foundation of learning after a stroke or any type of injury to the brain or spinal cord. In part 1 of this series, I discussed what experience-dependent neuroplasticity is and why this is an important concept to understand.

In this video I will discuss the key principles that are critical maximize your rehabilitation potential and prevent further degradation of the neurologic system.

    I love you Mam, I love each and every word you are saying. Recently my mother had right side hemarrhogic stroke and her left side of the body paralyzed. She is going through physiotherapy and electric nerve stimulator but the problem is she used to have arthritis and she used to walk sides because of the pain. What should we do to help her to walk again and what not to do in those situations? Please help us Mam…

    100 percent stroke patient recover for neuroplasciticy? Pls reply ma’am

  20. OKUWE THELMA on December 17, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    I was discharged from Mach 2018 after being in the hospital for a full nine months in total. My stroke affected my left side, and my vision and cognition were affected as well. I wouldn’t have known where to start writing this, and it’s taken a while, but I’m sure it’s all good practice and will help me. (But I apologize for any mistakes! … spelling and grammar …. etc.) They say patience is a virtue, and that may be more true after a stroke. However, I see improvements every day. Stay strong and talk about how you feel. I had numerous areas of my brain that were affected, I get very emotional and cry at times. I wasn’t depressed, just a little ‘waxed’ with my brain.
    My journey started in November 2016. I had felt very tired for quite some time and my husband came in from work one night to find me very sleepy and not very attentive. He called an ambulance. Shortly after I had a seizure and then another four more on the way! They did a blood test and found that I was several anemic, with a blood count of 23, so I needed 4 units of blood, which needed to be done very quickly, otherwise, I would not have survived. This worked wonders for me and I was in the hospital for about another week, then discharged with plans to do more research as an outpatient. After being home for about a week, I had another seizure and was taken back to the hospital. I had a few more, which led to my first hit on December 12. I spent the whole of Christmas in the hospital and was making a good recovery until December 31st. On New Year’s Eve, I had my second stroke, which affected another area of ​​my brain. This turned my back on me, but I continued my recovery. I was starting to get quite down, but then my first grandson told me about Dr. Peju’s herbal remedy that was said to have cured Stroke. I was in the hospital so I had something to focus on. After a week or so I moved home. We had to contact the Herbalist for his herbs. It went really well for me for a couple of months as I had just started taking a couple of steps. While at home, I was visited by a volunteer from Different Strokes, since they found out that I was recovering in months after taking the herbs. were also a stroke survivor. Inspire me! So, when I was well healed, I joined the Different Strokes ‘family’ (#dsfamily). The peer support is fantastic and now I am even involved in managing the Leeds Central group! I am completely healed. I survived the hits and I’m here to tell the story! Contact Dr. Peju by email I survived the hits and I’m here to tell the story!

    Would love for my Mom to book an appointment with you! How can I set this up?

  25. Dian Barnett on December 17, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    your tips and techniqes are really helpful. i suffered a stroke a year and two months now , at age 57 and i am frustrated sometimes because i have such difficulties walking with spacricity and hyperextensive knee, i did some therapy in the first ten weeks but im not able to afford therapy now. i try to repeat what i have learnt at best but not consistent enough. sometimes i feel much pain in knee and shoulder and fingers and get frustrated because of snapping knees and pointed toes. coordination is off in movements of my affected leg. This gets so hard.

  26. Entanglement TV on December 17, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    Thorough. Thank you!

  27. Marsha Mat on December 17, 2021 at 12:12 pm

  28. Achodo Grace on December 17, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    Thanks for your elanorate education. Am not a stroke patient but a stroke support program coordinator. More if this type of education helps people like me give the right Support To our Clients.
    Pls. Are there free online certificate training for stroke nurses?

  29. Lynne Spangenberg on December 17, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    problem is getting to the point of being able to use it ( which it seems to me is an internal thing, e.g., I can now move my weak leg : but now need to be careful not to use the strong side to help the weak leg along : using quad cane and strong arm to walk : does that still count as using the weak leg : assume it’s better than sitting in my wheelchair (doing an activity ) just need to focus on getting arm to move ps- am definitely subscribed and notified – delighted when there’s another video but have started going back and watching any I have missed: so very grateful you are doing this:THANKS!!!

  30. Michael Mallal on December 17, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    I walked to mall today sans cane. I want to impress doctors to get license back.

  31. Kimmy King on December 17, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Does calf raises really strengthen the leg or does it just tire the muscles

    Thank you for taking time to share your knowledge. I really appreciate it. I had a stroke 7 months ago lost left side mobility. Doctors said I didn’t have any clots. It was caused by my pressure getting to high due to cholesterol being really high. Could you share some insight plz?

  39. Nilofar Aziz on December 17, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    just wanted to say hi. I came across that video (or the previous version) when looking for learning in general.
    Even though I, or my entourage, are not recovering from brain injuries, I wanted to show my support.
    There are too many good things I’d like to say about the work being done on this channel.
    Blessings!
