  • What Is EMG?

    EMG or Electromyography is a neurological test to help evaluate muscle and nerve function. During the test, electrical impulses are employed to stimulate various nerves to determine how well they are working. Also, a small pin may be inserted into various muscles for a detailed study of the activity of individual muscle fibers.

  • What Is EEG?

    An EEG or electroencephalogram is a completely safe and painless procedure for recording the electrical activity produced by the brain. Patterns of the brain's electrical activity provide information about specific brain functions. This information is used to help in identifying a wide variety of neurological problems.

  • What Is A Stroke?

    A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving the brain tissue of oxygen and food. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. This incident is called as a stroke.

  • What Are The Symptoms Of Stroke?

    • Trouble with walking: You may stumble or experience sudden dizziness, loss of balance or loss of coordination.
    • Trouble with speaking and understanding: You may experience confusion. You may slur your words or have difficulty understanding speech.
    • Paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg: You may develop sudden numbness, weakness or paralysis in your face, arm or leg, especially on one side of your body. Try to raise both your arms over your head at the same time. If one arm begins to fall, you may be having a stroke. Similarly, one side of your mouth may droop when you try to smile.
    • Trouble with seeing in one or both eyes: You may suddenly have blurred or blackened vision in one or both eyes, and/or you may see double.
    • Headache: A sudden, severe headache, which may be accompanied by vomiting, dizziness or altered consciousness, may indicate you're having a stroke.

  • What Should I Expect In My Recovery?

    Recovery from stroke is a lifelong process. For many people, recovery begins with formal rehabilitation, which can restore independence by improving physical, mental and emotional functions. It is important for you and your family to know that no matter where you are in your recovery journey, there is always hope.
