What is the role of a rehabilitation nurse in stroke rehabilitation?
Natalia Rost, MD, Neurology, answeredA rehabilitation nurse helps you learn to carry out the activities involved in daily personal care. These include taking your medication on the right schedule, bathing, using the bathroom, and getting yourself in and out of a wheelchair. Rehabilitation nurses can also teach you exercises and other strategies to control incontinence. Rehabilitation nurses educate relatives, friends, and other caregivers about how to take care of someone who has had a stroke.
Can I live at home after a stroke?
Most stroke survivors are able to return home and resume many of the activities they were involved in before the stroke. Leaving the hospital may seem scary at first because so many things may have changed. The hospital staff can help prepare you to move home or perhaps to another setting that can better meet your needs.
What should I know before I try Bowen therapy?
Bowen therapy is a minimally invasive technique and is generally believed to be safe in most people. However, safety has not been thoroughly studied. Bowen therapy should not be used for severe conditions or in place of more proven treatments. Use cautiously in patients with cancer or in those who are undergoing surgery.
There is not enough scientific study of the safety of Bowen therapy during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Caution is advised.
Some Bowen technique practitioners recommend that the "coccyx procedure" be avoided among pregnant women. Some also recommended that the "TMJ procedure" be avoided among people whose jaws have been surgically altered at the condyles. Women with breast implants should avoid the "breast tenderness procedure," according to some practitioners.
