Recovering from Hand Weakness after Stroke

Weakness or paralysis is very common after a stroke. In fact, approximately nine out of every ten survivors of stroke experience some type of limitation in muscle movementThe two most common kinds of post-stroke paralysis, or inability for muscles to move voluntarily, are hemiplegia and hemiparesisHemiplegia refers to severe paralysis of one side of the body. Hemiplegia is painful and can result in spasticity, stiffness or spasms in the muscles, or atrophy, the wasting away of the muscles. Hemiparesis is less severe than hemiplegia and is characterized by a weakness on one side of the body, typically most observable in the extremities, such as the hands. Hemiparesis can make it very difficult to perform even basic daily tasks, as it affects a survivor’s ability to grasp and release objects. It can also cause loss of balance, difficulty walking, and muscle fatigue.

Guide to Mirror Therapy and the Benefits of Neuroplasticity

What is Neuroplasticity?

The plasticity of a cell refers to its ability to change. Every time you make a movement (or your brain thinks you are), the brain is building connections. In the case of a stroke survivor, parts of the brain may have experienced damage and thus new connections are being formed. When a person loses the ability to move part of the body due to damage, those areas must be repopulated with healthy connecting neurons to regain full movement. The brain repurposes cells that control other parts and trains them to be used for new tasks. In the case of stroke survivors, neuroplasticity can be harnessed to their advantage in rehabilitation. Approaches like mirror therapy and visualization use neuroscientific principles to rehabilitate areas of the brain so survivors can regain control of their thinking and independent ability to complete daily tasks.

If someone in your family has a stroke, you may experience a significant change in your life. That person will need great care and support, and there may be a variety of emotional and behavioral changes that you’ll have to be prepared for. This can especially be the case if the stroke occurs at a young age. Not only will a stroke survivor need guidance and encouragement, but a young person recovering from a stroke will need assistance with a wide range of other tasks. According to an article published by Stroke Research and Treatment Magazine, there are many outcomes that “are attributable to the effects of stroke on age-normative roles and activities, self-image, and the young person’s stage in the life-cycle, especially family and work. ‘Hidden’ cognitive impairments, a disrupted sense of self, and the incongruity of suffering an ‘older person’s’ disease is salient.”
