Small Stroke Recovery

Stroke is the third-leading cause of death in developed countries and the second-leading cause of death worldwide. Stroke rehabilitation can also be extremely costly: the lifetime cost of stroke recovery per person ranges from between $20,000 and $230,000. Given the costs involved, finding the right program for stroke cerebellum recovery, mild stroke recovery, or cerebral stroke recovery is essential.

Stroke is what happens when blood supply to an indispensable part of the body. Deprived of oxygen, within a few minutes brain cells are damaged or begin dying. There are two main kinds of stroke: ischemic strokes and hemorrhagic strokes. Ischemic stroke results from the blocking of a cerebral artery, often because of a blood clot. One type of ischemic stroke, a transient ischemic stroke or “mini-stroke,” occurs if the artery is only blocked temporarily, necessitating mild stroke recovery. Hemorrhagic stroke, also known as aneurysm, occurs if an artery in the brain leaks or ruptures. The pressure from the leaked blood may damage the brain cells.

The effects of a stroke will vary depending on the exact location of damage in the brain. Brain-stem stroke can cause serious impairment to vital life functions like breathing and heart rate. Survivors may experience dizziness, slurred speech, and paralysis. Left-brain stroke may impair the faculties of speech and language comprehension, while right-brain stroke may damage the individual’s awareness that he or she has been injured. Because the cerebellum is the area of the brain in charge of motion and balance, cerebellar stroke may cause loss of coordination and equilibrium.

At New York Dynamic Neuromusuclar Rehabilitation clinic (NYDNRehab), we provide a comprehensive range of treatment options for stroke rehabilitation in New York City. Our clinic combines advanced technologies with an experienced, hands-on approach to provide exercises for stroke recovery that can’t be done in a typical clinical setting. So whatever the needs of the patient, whether small stroke recovery or more extensive rehabilitation, NYDNRehab offers all-encompassing treatment.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
