A stroke occurs when blood flow is lost in the brain, causing localized damage. Depending on the severity and part of the brain affected, stroke victims can experience partial paralysis and difficulties with gait, everyday skills, speech and swallowing. Neurological disordersinclude medically complex diseases that attack the body’s central nervous system. Diseases such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Lou Gehrig’s disease, commonly called ALS, require specialized treatment plans. Aveerat Health and Therapy Center uses a team approach to provide patients with an individualized plan that meets those specific needs.
