About Treatment

Rehabilitation helps someone who has had a stroke relearn skills that are suddenly lost when part of the brain is damaged. Equally important in rehabilitation is to protect the individual from developing new medical problems, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, injury due to fall, or a clot formation in large veins. Research shows the most important element in any neurorehabilitation program is carefully directed, well-focused, repetitive practice—the same kind of practice used by all people when they learn a new skill, such as playing the piano or pitching a baseball. The neurorehabilitation program must be customized to practice those skills impaired due to the stroke, such as weakness, lack of coordination, problems walking, loss of sensation, problems with hand grasp, visual loss, or trouble speaking or understanding. Research using advance imaging technology shows that the functions previously located in the area of damage move to other brain regions and practice helps drive this rewiring of brain circuits (called neuroplasticity). Rehabilitation also teaches new ways to compensate for any remaining disabilities. For example, one might need to learn how to bathe and dress using only one hand, or how to communicate effectively with assistive devices if the ability to use language has been affected.

    Stroke Treatment

    I am 63 years old and come from Saudi Arabia.  Being 180 cm high, I weigh 110 kg.  I used to smoke and drink alcohol. A few months before arriving to the Infinity Clinic for stem cell therapy, I lost consciousness at work and it turned out to be because of hemorrhagic stroke. After routine hospital treatment, my left hand remained paralyzed, though sensitivity in it was fine. I really wished for it to be as before…

    Infinity Clinic doctors offered me the program of treatment with fetal stem cells that was developed specifically to promote regeneration of the damaged parts of my nervous system. Apart from the consequences of the stroke, I suffered from hypertension and fatty liver, so the doctors added to my personal treatment-plan stem cells derived from the fetal heart and fetal liver in order to achieve better effect.

    5 months after the treatment, my blood pressure went down from 170/100 to 145/90, I have better digestion, no pain in the upper right region of my abdomen and I feel better overall. The most important result is that my left hand mobility restored by 50%! The doctors advised me repeat the treatment, and 6 months after the second course I can use my left hand as before. My children cried of happiness!!!

The future of stem cell therapy for stroke rehabilitation

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4795912/

The biggest challenge is the coalescing cell therapy with rehabilitation therapy in an effort to realize improved outcomes in stroke patients. Indeed, in the recent Stem Cell Therapeutics as an Emerging Paradigm for Stroke or STEPS 3 meeting, a key theme that was advanced by the group is to examine stem cell therapy vis-à-vis with rehabilitation therapy to reveal not only stand-alone effects of each therapy [12], but to potentially assess the concept of combination therapy for stroke. Although stroke rehabilitation is well recognized in the clinic [3], most of the preclinical studies on stem cell therapy have not incorporated this rehabilitation effect in the experimental design. Accordingly, this lack of rehabilitation control arm in the laboratory represents as a major disconnect between the preclinical arena and the clinical setting, limiting the recognition of the potential benefits of stem cell therapy to stroke rehabilitation and vice versa. Notwithstanding, if we define rehabilitation as ‘exercise’, there are excellent studies in the laboratory that have assessed the beneficial role of exercise in influencing the fate of endogenous stem cells. The concept that exercise enhances neurogenesis was popularized by Rusty Gage and colleagues [4]. In particular, in this paper and several other subsequent papers from this group and others showed that new cells almost doubled in the hippocampus after just 12 days of daily running. A paper by Mark Mattson [5], fittingly titled ‘take away my food, and let me run’ discusses the benefit of running, as well as good diet!…

Stem Cell Therapy in Stroke: A Review Literature

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3678210/

Stroke is an important cause of death in the world and disability worldwide especially in developed countries. It has two sub-types, hemorrhagic and ischemic and the latter make up the majority of all strokes, almost 80% of the total[2] susceptibilities of neurons in the brain to injuries such as ischemia leading to difficult treatment of suffered patients from the involved diseases. Following acute phase of stroke, some procedures and medical treatment such as thrombolytic agents has been recommended; nevertheless many patients have enduring deficits. Thus, there is a realistic need to develop treatment strategies for reducing neurological deficits. On the other hand, in stroke, damage process is acute and restricted in time, also multiple cell types including, endothelial and neural cells has been lost therefore, the brain may be more ready to transplantation than in other neurologic diseases. However, the stem cell (SC) therapy could arrange an alternative intervention for disease modifying therapy.
