Emergency Care For Stroke

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain gets interrupted. There is sudden weakness and numbness in one side of the body, trouble speaking, seeing, and walking with loss of balance in the body. It is a medical emergency and needs appropriate treatment. Taking an IV injection of tissue plasminogen activator improves the chances of getting recovered from a stroke. Doing physiotherapy with patience helps to have some improvement.
