Pediatric Stroke and Recovery

The major reason of death in children in the USA  is due to stroke and the most pediatric stroke survivors will be suffering from neurological or cognitive impairments. Because of the plasticity of the brains of children, they recover earlier than adults. A stroke survivor may be diagnosed with Epilepsy. Based on the cause of the stroke, the treatments will be decided by the physicians. Constraint therapy is an old therapy, but it is now widely used in pediatric stroke rehabilitation. If the stroke is caused by the blockage, then blood thinning medications will be given. If a stroke occurs due to Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), then an immediate blood transfusion will be performed. A physiotherapist can help with movement problems such as weakness or paralysis, spasticity or muscle spasms.  The therapist will assess and design a program to increase muscle strength (which can reduce the risk of spasticity) and movement. It is estimated that about 6 million deaths are due to cerebrovascular disorders. It is the second leading cause of death in the world and 6th most common cause of disability.
