A stroke happens when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, often by a blood clot or other blockage. This can cause a loss of brain or body function.
After suffering a stroke, it is important to receive quality follow-up care from providers who understand how to assess the effects of stroke while working to help the stroke sufferer regain brain or body function whenever possible. The providers at Novant Health Winston Neurology are skilled in stroke care. They monitor patients after strokes, look for ways to improve brain and body function, make referrals for physical or occupational therapy when needed, and work to identify stroke risk and prevent future strokes.
