Conditions and Treatments

Stroke

A stroke, often referred to as a "brain attack," is a medical emergency that occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, either by a blockage in the blood vessels (ischemic stroke) or by bleeding into the brain tissue (hemorrhagic stroke). This interruption in blood supply can lead to severe damage to brain cells, causing a range of physical and cognitive impairments. Strokes can manifest suddenly, with symptoms such as sudden numbness, confusion, difficulty speaking, or loss of coordination. Timely intervention is crucial to minimize long-term consequences, and immediate medical attention can significantly improve the chances of recovery. Risk factors for strokes include hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle. Public awareness about the signs and symptoms of strokes, as well as preventive measures, plays a vital role in reducing the overall burden of this life-altering condition.

Parkinsons Disease & Other Movement Disorders

Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders are conditions that affect the nervous system, causing changes in movement and coordination. Parkinson's disease is characterized by tremors, stiffness, slow movement, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Other movement disorders include essential tremor, dystonia, and Huntington's disease. These conditions can have various causes, including genetic factors, environmental factors, and damage to the brain's structures. Symptoms can be managed through medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes. While there is no cure, treatment can help improve the quality of life and alleviate symptoms. Early diagnosis and ongoing care are essential for managing these conditions effectively.

Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, the most common cause of dementia among older adults. It gradually impairs memory, cognition, and eventually, the ability to carry out daily tasks. Risk factors include age, family history, and genetic predisposition. Pathologically, it involves the accumulation of abnormal protein deposits in the brain, leading to nerve cell death and brain tissue loss. Symptoms may include memory loss, confusion, mood changes, and difficulty with language or decision-making. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer's, but treatments can help manage symptoms and improve the quality of life for affected individuals and their caregivers.
