Stroke & Paralysis

Stroke is a medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted or reduced, leading to the death of brain cells. Paralysis, on the other hand, is a loss of muscle function in one or more parts of the body. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including stroke, spinal cord injury, or neurological disorders.
One of the hallmarks of Preetham Neuro Centre’s approach to stroke and paralysis treatment is its emphasis on education and support. They understand that stroke and paralysis can be life-changing events for patients and their families and offer ongoing counselling and resources to help patients adjust to their new reality and achieve their goals.
