Treatment after microstroke should start as early as possible in order to prevent the development of full-scale stroke. But the problem is that the symptoms microstroke often goes unnoticed, or they simply do not pay enough attention.
The main therapeutic measures after microstroke
A patient with minor strokes, if you managed to fix the symptoms of the disease should be immediately hospitalized and examined, after which he must be assigned adequate (in line with the abuses and primary diagnosis) treatment.
The objectives of such treatment includes therapy of microstroke consequences and prevention of possible development of a full stroke. For this purpose, it appointed medical treatment, if necessary - physiotherapy, reflexology

. As soon as possible and try to enter the complex of medical gymnastics. But most importantly - patients are encouraged to completely change the lifestyle and dietary patterns.
Drug treatment is aimed at treating the underlying disease that caused the cerebral circulation. Atherosclerosis appointed vasodilators (they increase the blood flow to the brain), nootropics (the main action of these drugs is aimed at improving the metabolism in the brain cells and a decrease in their oxygen demand, which leads to improvement of higher brain function), drugs that reduce rolling capacity of the blood (prevention of blood clots).
To restore the normal blood flow in the brain is also required to identify and treat a variety of disorders in the cardiovascular system - primarily cardiac arrhythmias and high blood pressure (BP).
Microstroke often accompanied by emotional and motor excitation, which requires the appointment of sedatives. In the presence of depression

prescribe antidepressants. Of great importance is a dream - it is governed by a walk in the fresh air before going to bed

and if it is ineffective, - hypnotics.
If after microstroke were minor residual effects in the form of a weakness of limbs, blurred speech, and so on used techniques such as reflexology (a special effect on the point on the surface of the body associated with the various organs and tissues) and physiotherapy. But this treatment is more related to the reduction.
Changing your lifestyle and daily routine after microstroke
When microstroke it is no less important than medication. Once the patient's condition improves, that is, the main symptoms are not just minor stroke but the disease calling it (such as lower blood pressure), patients are encouraged to gradually increase physical activity. This is vital, since it is a sedentary lifestyle contributes to increased thrombosis and cerebrovascular accidents.
At first it can be a leisurely short walks several times a day in conjunction with the rest. Especially recommended such a walk before bedtime to improve sleep. Over time, added to walk various complexes of therapeutic exercises.
In the day of moderate exercise must be combined with good rest, including at night.
Changes in the diet
No less important is the change of the regime and diet. This is especially important in atherosclerosis, when the body is impaired cholesterol metabolism. As is known, cholesterol - a substance vital to the human body for proper metabolism
Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
As it participates in many biochemical reactions. This so-called "useful" cholesterol, which body receives from vegetable oils rich in unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
But there is also the "harmful" cholesterol, which is formed in the body of the saturated fatty acids contained in the fat meat. It is from this form of cholesterol plaques are deposited on the walls of blood vessels and reduce their lumen.
Patients after microstroke recommended to replace animal fats in the fats found in vegetable oils. In addition, such patients should eat more vegetables and fruits, low-fat dairy products, including sour milk, cottage cheese.
Matters and diet: eat more and better in small portions - so food is better digested and absorbed by the body. The best is eating 4-5 times a day.
Treatment after microstroke - it's basically a survey, detection and treatment of the underlying disease, which led to the cerebral circulation. Therefore, a healthy lifestyle is part of the comprehensive treatment of this disease.
