Post Stroke Rehabilitation Q & A

What is post-stroke rehabilitation?

Post-stroke rehabilitation at Mindful TMS Neurocare Centers uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy to ease troublesome post-stroke symptoms. 

Your specialist uses this cutting-edge technology, which contains magnetic fields that alter nerve cells in your brain, to help restore desirable brain functioning. Post-stroke rehab also reduces your chance of having another stroke. 

What symptoms can post-stroke rehabilitation address?

Post-stroke rehabilitation at Mindful TMS Neurocare Centers helps diminish the following symptoms:

  • Speech and communication issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Other mental health conditions 
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Mood swings
  • Paralysis
  • Weakness
  • Coordination or balance issues
  • Chronic pain
  • Numbness
  • Burning
  • Tingling 
  • Fatigue
  • Changes to one side of your body
  • Bowel or urinary incontinence
  • Difficulty writing or reading
  • Problems swallowing 
  • Personality changes
  • Memory or problem-solving issues
  • Poor attention span
  • Vision issues
  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Problems socializing 

You might have difficulty recognizing limitations that develop after a stroke. Depression is common, particularly if you have crippling post-stroke symptoms. 

Is post-stroke rehabilitation with TMS right for me?

The Mindful TMS Neurocare Centers team customizes a post-stroke rehabilitation treatment plan, which often includes TMS, after discussing your symptoms, medications, medical history, and more. 

They complete a psychiatric evaluation to determine if you suffer from anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or another mental health concern. Your specialist discusses your thoughts, moods, emotions, and behaviors before personalizing your plan. 

What happens during TMS post-stroke rehabilitation?

Mindful TMS Neurocare Centers specializes in TMS for post-stroke rehabilitation. Your provider places a coil on your scalp while you relax. The coils emit magnetic fields that penetrate nerve cells within your brain, altering such cells to diminish problematic symptoms.

While the treatment isn’t painful, you can expect to hear tapping and clicking sounds during each 20-40-minute TMS session. 

You might undergo TMS five days per week for 4-6 weeks to reap the most benefits of this safe, FDA-approved treatment. 

Additional post-stroke rehabilitation solutions you may be a match for include making healthy lifestyle changes, taking medications, and undergoing individualized, couples, or family therapy.
