|The Origin Of Stroke
What is a Stroke?
Stroke is a disorder of brain function caused by blood flow to the brain is impaired (reduced). As a result, nutrients and oxygen the brain needs is not fulfilled. Cause there are two kinds of strokes, namely the existence of blockages in blood vessels (thrombus), and the presence of a ruptured blood vessel.
Generally a stroke suffered by the elderly, because the aging process causes hardening and narrowing of blood vessels (arteriosclerosis) and the presence of fats that clog arteries (atherosclerosis). But some recent cases show an increase in cases of stroke that occurs in adolescence and childbearing age (15-40 years). In this group, stroke is the leading cause of stress, drug abuse, alcohol, hereditary factors and unhealthy lifestyle.
Causes of Stroke
In the case of stroke adolescence, genetic factors (heredity) is a major cause of stroke. Frequently encountered cases of stroke caused by blood vessels are fragile and easily broken, or blood system disorders such as hemophilia and thalassemia disease are passed down from parents of patients. Meanwhile, if a family member with diabetes (diabetes), hypertension (high blood pressure), and heart disease, stroke likely to be larger in other family members.
Other causes of stroke is a food with high levels of bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein) is very high. Cholesterol is abundant in junk food, or fast food that is claimed to be unhealthy food. In addition, other causes of stroke is a lazy habit of exercising and moving, lots of drinking, smoking, use of narcotic and addictive substances, much less rest time, and prolonged stress that declining health. Rupture of blood vessels are also often caused by high blood pressure (hypertension).
Symptoms of a Stroke
The early symptoms of stroke are generally dizzy, head spinning (such as vertigo disease), followed by disorders of speech and mouth muscles move. Other symptoms are tergangguanya taste sensor (can not feel anything, such as pinched or pricked needles) and the body feels paralyzed side, and the absence of reflexes. Often occurs suddenly blind or blurred sight (because the supply of blood and oxygen to the eye is reduced drastically), impaired taste in the mouth system and muscles of the mouth (so often encountered people with a wry face), paralysis of the muscles of the body, and disruption system memory and emotion. Often encountered people can not stop crying because of paralysis of the brain controls the emotional system. It makes people act like stroke sufferers of mental illness, but it’s not. Things like that need to be understood by the patient’s family.
The Healing Process
There are 2 main healing process that must be endured by the patient. First is healing with medicines in hospitals. Strict control should be done to keep the bad cholesterol levels can be lowered and not getting up. In addition, patients are also forbidden to eat foods that can trigger a stroke like junk food (unhealthy food) and salt (can trigger hypertension).
The second is the healing process with fisiotherapy, which exercises the muscles to restore muscle function and communication functions in order to be close to the original. Fisiotherapy conducted with the instructor, and the patient must adhere to the exercise performed. If this is not undertaken fisiotherapy seriously, they can lead to permanent paralysis of limbs paralyzed ever.
