About Stroke Care
Acting quickly can make all the difference during a stroke. That's why Ascension is committed to staying on top of leading-edge stroke treatments. Our emergency and neurology teams work swiftly and effectively to help ensure your well-being.
Sometimes, individuals experience a mini-stroke called a transient ischemic attack (TIA). A TIA generally causes no permanent damage, but it can be a warning sign that a stroke is coming, even as soon as the next day. If you experience sudden trouble speaking, loss of balance, numbness in your face, arm or leg — especially on one side of the body — be sure to see a doctor right away.
Our stroke rehabilitation plans include individualized care in our neurology rehabilitation program. Your care team will work closely with you to help improve your walking, balance and strength, so you can start getting back to your everyday life.
