Stroke - Central

A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Strokes can cause mild to severe physical, emotional or mental disabilities. Rehabilitation can help people who have had a stroke to recover function and live as independently as possible. Stroke prevention teaches you how to reduce your risk through medical treatment and lifestyle changes.

Signs of a stroke can include: sudden weakness, numbness or tingling, sudden trouble speaking or understanding speech, sudden vision problems, sudden severe headache, sudden dizziness or loss of balance. Stroke is a medical emergency, call 911. Acting quickly can improve your survival and recovery.

See Physiotherapy Services - Publicly Funded Clinics and Speech and Language for therapy services.
