Stroke Patient with Chiropractor - Aarrow Straight Chiropractic Hudson NH 03051

If you or someone you know has experienced a stroke, you may be familiar with the challenges that come with the recovery process. Stroke can affect not only your physical abilities but also your cognitive functions. But what if there was a way to improve muscle function, increase brain function, and enhance overall recovery in stroke patients? Enter Chiropractic care – a potential game-changer for stroke patients.

Help for Stroke Patients

Recent research by Dr. Mark Studin has shed light on the positive effects of Chiropractic adjustments on muscle function in stroke patients. The study looked at how Chiropractic care can impact two crucial nerves that play a significant role in muscle function – the “H-Reflex” and the “V” Wave.

The H-Reflex measures how well the muscles respond to signals from the brain, while the V Wave records changes in how the brain communicates with the muscles. By receiving just one Chiropractic adjustment, stroke patients can experience improvements in both the H-Reflex and V Wave. This means they can better control their muscles and perform tasks more effectively during rehabilitation.

More Successful Stroke Recovery

But the benefits don’t stop there. Chiropractic adjustments can also increase muscle strength and reduce fatigue in stroke patients. This means that patients can improve their physical abilities and overall function, leading to a more successful recovery process.

How Chiropractic Care Helps

So, how does Chiropractic care achieve these remarkable results? The adjustments help to optimize cortical drive to muscles, allowing for repeated maximum contractions. This change is crucial in stroke therapy rehab, as it enables patients to regain control over their muscles and improve their overall function.

By improving muscle function, increasing brain function, and enhancing overall recovery, Chiropractic adjustments can make a significant difference in the lives of those who have experienced a stroke. So if you or a loved one is on the road to recovery after a stroke, consider incorporating Chiropractic care into your rehabilitation plan. It could be the key to unlocking a faster, more successful recovery.
