What are the most common neurological disorders treated at Apollo Spectra Kanpur?

Stroke

When the blood supply doesn’t reach a part of the brain, it doesn’t receive the necessary oxygen and nutrients required to function accordingly. Hence, the cells begin to die within a few minutes after the supply is stopped. A stroke requires immediate medical treatment. It is categorized as a medical emergency. If the patient receives treatment immediately, it can reduce the damage of the brain and prevent further complications. Fortunately, strokes can be treated and prevented. The symptoms of this condition include;

  • Trouble speaking and even understanding what is being said. The patient may feel confused and slur the words while speaking.
  • Paralysis or numbness occurs in the face, arm or the leg. It can be a sudden occurrence and can happen only on one side of the body.
  • The patient will not be able to see either with one eye or both the eyes or may experience blurry vision.
  • A sudden headache, vomiting, dizziness can also be an indication of a stroke
  • Trouble walking
