Rehabilitation after stroke

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability around the world and is a major cause of long-term disability. Stroke occurs due to impaired blood supply to the brain, followed by damage to brain tissue. There are two types of stroke: hemorrhagic stroke, when there is a rupture of a cerebral vessel; ischemic stroke, when the blood supply to the vessel is disrupted.
Depending on which part of the brain was affected and to what extent, the manifestations are of varying degrees of complexity: impaired speech, impaired consciousness, paralysis of the arms, legs, face, half of the body. After the stroke, the patient will receive long-term medical treatment and physical rehabilitation. Patients often do not know about rehabilitation after a stroke, and therefore, valuable time is lost for full recovery.
GOOD CELLS specialists offer a stem cell therapy as a way to initiate maximum and rapid recovery of the body and return to normal life. By the way, the use of stem cells is quite possible in combination with physical rehabilitation. This approach belongs to the innovative field of medicine called regenerative rehabilitation, which integrates regenerative technologies with clinical practice of rehabilitation to restore the functions and quality of life.

How do stem cells contribute to recovery after a stroke?

After a stroke, depending on the severity and period of the disease, the use of two types of stem cells is often practiced - mesenchymal stem cells of the umbilical cord and multipotent stem cells derived from the neural crest. Mesenchymal stem cells have a targeted effect on the removal of inflammatory processes in the body, stimulate the restoration of blood supply, secrete trophic factors, while stem cells derived from the neural crest protect nerve cells from death, stimulate glia cells to secrete neurotrophic factors. After stem cell therapy, there is a reduction in neurological deficits, improved motor function, speech and quality of daily life of patients.

The treatment process

  • 1. Communication with the manager

    Please contact our managers. It does not oblige you to anything. They will be glad to answer all your questions. At this stage, the manager will ask you to send your medical reports and the results of previous examinations so that the doctor can examine them and confirm the diagnosis. This is necessary to determine exactly how we can help you. Then you will be offered a free online consultation with a doctor or an appointment at the clinic.

  • 2. Online / offline consultation with a doctor 

    Any treatment program begins with the confirmation of a diagnosis and examination. During a personal consultation with a doctor you will be able to find out all the details of the program, get a personal forecast of effectiveness. We will review all medical information you provide, as we must be confident that the treatment will be effective for you. The treatment program is developed individually. Its duration can be 1-3 days.

  • 3. Assessment of the patient's condition

    Your doctor will assess your readiness for cell therapy.
    In case of a positive assessment, depending on the doctor's recommendations, you may be prescribed your own or donor stem cells.

  • 4. Preparation of the stem cell product

    OWN CELLSIn the laboratory, specialists isolate, cultivate and test stem cells to verify their compliance with the minimum criteria for determining MSCs. Then the therapeutic dose and a quality passport are formed. Usually, the production period takes 21-28 days.
    DONOR CELLSAccording to the doctor's prescription, the biotechnologist selects a ready-made sample of donor cells from our cryobank. All samples have been pre-tested for safety. In this case, the introduction of cells is possible after diagnosis and drug preparation. The production period takes 1-3 days.

  • 5. Beginning of treatment

    Any treatment course must include preliminary diagnostics, tests and examinations (ultrasound, ECG and other tests and screenings prescribed to you).

  • 6. Introduction of cellular product, regeneration phase

    As a part of treatment program, the doctor may prescribe intravenous cell therapy and endolumbar administration of the cell drug. The number of injections will depend on the patient's condition.

  • 7. Medical conclusion and recommendations after treatment

    At the end of the course you will be given a medical conclusion, which will indicate the diagnosis, the results of all examinations (clinical, laboratory and instrumental), methods of treatment and recommendations. Your doctor will make recommendations to maintain and improve your condition.

  • 8. Keeping in touch

    After treatment, our patients must keep in touch with the clinic. In 3 and 6 month after treatment, our manager will contact you and offer to fill in a questionnaire, if necessary, talk to your doctor about the treatment results. Throughout the program, you will be in touch with a personal manager who will ensure easy communication between you and the doctor to monitor the dynamics of treatment.

FAQ

  • What are the symptoms of a stroke?

    Symptoms of a stroke include sudden numbness or weakness of the body; sudden confusion or speech impediment; sudden problems with walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; sudden severe headache for no apparent reason.

  • Why is it so important to see a doctor as soon as possible after a stroke?

    In the acute stage of stroke, an urgent visit to the doctor makes it possible to conduct thrombolysis and prevent the development of the disease. Timely making an appointment with a specialist in the subacute stage or recovery stage after ischemic stroke provides more opportunities for rehabilitation, increases neuroplasticity of tissues and increases the likelihood of new neural connections. All this reduces the neurological deficit and helps to recover faster.

  • What does stem cell rehabilitation include for recovery after stroke?

    Rehabilitation after ischemic stroke with the use of stem cells improves the possibilities of neuroplasticity of the brain, the formation of new neural pathways and the restoration of functionally active but damaged brain pathways.

  • How quickly can I return to a normal life after stroke treatment using stem cells?

    The prognosis depends on several factors: the patient's condition before stroke, comorbidities, the speed of seeking medical attention and the start of cell therapy. After analyzing all these data, the doctor of GOOD CELLS will be able to give an individual prognosis of the effectiveness of stem cell therapy.
