Stroke is a disease caused by disorders of blood vessels in the brain. Stroke can be caused by obstruction of blood vessels (ischemic stroke) and stroke due to bleeding.
Symptoms of stroke that are often experienced by sufferers include weakness in one side of the body, difficulty speaking, feeling numb in parts of the body experiencing paralysis, impaired balance, decreased muscle function, impaired vision, etc.
Stroke is diagnosed from direct physical examination and investigations by CT scan or MRI to assess the condition of the brain. Treatment of stroke patients depends on the underlying cause, whether due to a blockage (ischemic stroke) of blood vessels or caused by a ruptured blood vessel.
However, it should be noted that stroke is not the only cause of bodily weakness after an accident, because often a stroke takes place suddenly and results in an accident. Head injury or injury to the spine can also be considered to be one of the factors causing paralysis and loss of function on one side of the body.
Treatment and recovery of stroke at home that can be done is to strive for weakened bodily functions to be back active, at least able to learn to do activities independently. Train the ability of muscles that experience weakness to avoid the risk of muscle atrophy (decreased muscle mass) and so that muscles become stronger. In addition it is advisable to use a walking aid if it is not fully able to run independently. This can help train the muscles and train stroke patients in their activities. Healthy nutrition and psychological support from family and loved ones are also quite important for the success of stroke patient therapy. Besides physiotherapy by therapists on a regular basis can also help improve the condition of patients.
Consult further with a neurologist to get more complete and relevant information regarding your father's condition. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
