Understanding Concussion and How It's Diagnosed

Many times following a stroke people will notice a change in their motor function.

Sometimes just on one side of their body, and it can be complete paralysis or a partial paralysis of the limbs, as I say on one side of their body in particular. And that relates to the side of their brain in which the stroke occurred.

Typical symptoms seen after a stroke can also include changes or disruption in speech or language function, which can relate to expressive or receptive language. As well as changes a person’s visual function, including sometimes what’s referred to as a visual field cut, where a person fails to recognize a specific visual region.

But there’s also a consolation of potential cognitive change that can occur as a result of a stroke, and it can result in significant deficits, which interfere with the person’s ability to function in their life in the ways that they had prior to that stroke.

If a person has questions about the effects that a stroke may have had on their function, they could start with their physician in terms of seeking out potential other referral options, which might include speech language pathology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy or neuropsychology.
