Stroke rehabilitation in Austria

What is worth knowing about recovery after stroke?

  • Rehabilitation after stroke is governed by the rule: the sooner you start the better. If you start in a week, the full recovery can be achieved in 2-3 months. If you start in a month, the positive results will be seen approximately after a year. The reason is the loss of brain’s neuroplasticity (an ability to adapt to inner or outer changes).
  • Medication treatment doesn’t replace stroke rehabilitation but only complements it and increases the effectiveness.
  • Patients after stroke are in difficult emotional condition therefore they need the help of experts. In specialized clinics they are treated by neuropsychologists that significantly enhances the recovery process.
  • It is very important to restore speech and swallowing functions during the rehabilitation. Many hospitals abroad employ special speech therapist for this reason.
  • Restoration of self-serving skills is the minimum effect of stroke rehabilitation.
  • Delayed rehabilitation and long maintenance in bed may cause some dangerous complications for the patient: bed sores, thrombosis or pneumonia.
  • You may be transferred to medical center for rehabilitation through medical aviation services (flight with all necessary personnel and equipment costs from $10,000).
  • BUT! Stroke may be followed by serious cardiovascular disorders, so the flight is possible only by the attending doctor’s consent.
