Treatment: Typically in the recovery and treatment phase, stroke patients are evaluated for the cause of a stroke, ischemic or hemorrhagic. They then prescribe medications to prevent reoccurrence and stabilize the health of the individual. The patient is then evaluated to determine what, if any rehabilitation is possible. During rehabilitation survivors undergo one or more of three types of rehabilitation; physical, occupational, and speech. These are the areas of division and a patient is rehabbed to the level to which the rehabilitation doctor or facility deem appropriate or if insurance or Medicare is involved only until a set number of sessions is reached.
Most individuals will tell you that when insurance ran out or session limits were met they were not where they wanted to be. Rehabilitation facilities are in a peculiar position in that they do as much as they can with the time allotted. Here at TCM Restoration we realize that the body needs to heal properly and completely and that TCM will affect and assist that healing. Rehabilitation then works in conjunction with the healing process to maximize results and bring about proper functioning of the body. It is a close relationship between the client, physician, and us… maximizing the effects and outcomes that the client wants. TCM in China is different from that in the US in - acupuncture needle placement, needle manipulation, depth, angles, TCM medications, tuina, costs, massage, personal assistants, and other TCM treatments. To be honest if we could do in the US what can be done here we would but we can’t. So we are here!
One of the most frustrating challenges that we face is that clients often hear of us years after their strokes so we have to overcome time, incomplete healing, bad habits and much more to see exciting things happen. In a perfect world no one would have strokes but barring that…. at least we are trying to get the word out and get people here ASAP! The sooner they are stabilized and can get here, the sooner that more complete healing of the body can occur. Most patients suffer with incomplete healing and are left in a state of mediocrity. We expand hopes and healing and work to create an environment for the body to heal itself and maximum results to be reached. If you know a healthcare provider or individual who has had a stroke encourage them to contact us.
