CVA (Cerebro Vascular Accident)
A CVA (Cerebro Vascular Accident) literally means ‘an accident in the blood vessels of the brain’. It occurs when the oxygen supply to the brain is suddenly interrupted by a blockage of a blood vessel (cerebral infarction) or when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and blood gets between the brain tissue (cerebral hemorrhage). A CVA is also commonly referred to as a stroke.
Consequences of a stroke are diverse and different for each person. Complaints can manifest themselves in physical problems, disturbances in thinking and/or changes in emotions or behaviour. We therefore believe that it is important.
Influence of exercise therapy on recovery Scientific research shows that physiotherapy is effective on recovery after a stroke. We aim to work with you to ensure that daily functioning runs as smoothly as possible. We teach you to make use of your possibilities and to deal with your limitations.
We provide research, treatment and advice. If necessary, we work closely with other disciplines such as occupational therapy and speech therapy. The therapist is affiliated with the Amsterdam CVA network. For more information, visit www.cvanet.amsterdam
If necessary, the therapist will come to your home.
