Strokes are the leading cause of disability in America and can result in depression, personality changes, poor memory, faulty judgment, concentration challenges, visual impairments and weakness. When it comes to the basics of stroke awareness most people know the risk factors that include: uncontrolled diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea; and symptoms such as: unexplained dizziness, loss of muscle coordination, confusion and vision changes. But how savvy are we when it comes to the lesser-known strategies that can help when it comes to prevention and recovery from silent strokes?
Dr. Ken Redcross says 80 percent of strokes are preventable and that there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to strokes. Most people think strokes only happen to older people, that they happen in the heart and that there is no prevention or treatment for stokes. These are all myths. A stroke is a brain attack. Despite “stroke awareness” on the basic risk factors and symptoms, the crushing reality for Americans is that occurrences of strokes continue to climb. According to research, approximately 12 million strokes occur every year, and 11 million of those are silent strokes. This means 11 million people are having strokes and most likely don’t even know about it.
