May is National Stroke Awareness Month
Discover the healing power of stroke rehabilitation
Stroke is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability and the fourth-leading cause of death in the United States. Our hospital is working to change those statistics by providing a few tips to help reduce your risk of stroke and warning signs of how you can identify that a stroke is occurring.
Take action on stroke by following these preventative tips:
- Eat healthy to maintain a healthy weight
- Exercise regularly with doctor’s approval
- Keep diabetes blood sugar levels in check
- Limit alcohol consumption
- Maintain a healthy blood pressure
- Stop smoking
- Treat high cholesterol
Take action on stroke by learning the warning signs:
- Numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
- Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
- Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
- Trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
- Severe headache with no known cause
If warning signs occur, immediately call 911.
