A stroke is the sudden death of brain cells that occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and other nutrients to the brain is blocked by a blood clot or a ruptured artery. As a consequence, bodily functions that are under the control of those nerve cells fail instantaneously. The aim of physiotherapy in rehabilitation of patients who suffered a stroke, is to improve their motor dysfunction and help them in regaining their independence and their reintegration in the family, social and professional environment.
