Synopsis:
Written for stroke survivors, their caregivers, and loved ones, Stronger After Stroke presents a new and more effective treatment philosophy that is startling in its simplicity: stroke survivors recover by using the same learning techniques that anyone uses to master anything. Focusing on recovery rather than adapting one's lifestyle to the stroke, the book defines the elements needed to drive neuroplastic change and "rewire" the brain through hard work, dedicated practice, and motivation. Basic concepts for achieving success are promoted including: - Repetition of task-specific movements - Proper scheduling of practice - Identifying challenges at each stage of recovery - Setting goals and recognizing when they have been achieved Incorporating the latest treatments, medications, and scientific thinking on recovery, the third edition of Stronger After Stroke is a field manual for stroke survivors to take charge and achieve the highest level of recovery.
