Paralysis after Stroke, Health Channel

Gabriela M. Ortega, Supervisor for Acute Rehabilitation at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains if you have a stroke on the right side of the brain, the deficits will appear on the left side of your body.

She also says stroke is one of the leading causes of long-term disability, because the brain controls everything, and depending on how long it takes you to seek help after a stroke, you can have many deficits and they can be permanent. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
