Healing the broken brain: leading experts answer 100 questions about stroke recovery
If you're holding this book, it likely means you or someone you love has had a stroke. Dealing with the onslaught of information about stroke can be confusing and overwhelming. And if you happen to be a stroke survivor with newly impaired language skills, it can be especially hard to comprehend everything your doctors, nurses, and specialists are telling you.
This book consists of the top 100 questions that survivors and their families ask, with answers from the top physicians and therapists in the country. The questions start out basic but then get more specific to address different areas of recovery. And, for stroke survivors still struggling with reading comprehension, or for family members who are simply too tired to read long passages, there are Takeaway Points at the end of each chapter to help simplify everything.
Includes answers to frequently asked questions such as:
· What is a stroke, and who is at risk for one?
· What is the best diet for a stroke survivor?
· How does group therapy compare to individual therapy?
· What should a stroke survivor look for in a therapist?
· How long will it take to recover, and how can stroke survivors maximize their recovery?
· What can someone do to prevent having another stroke?
In this book, you'll gain a wealth of information, inspiration, advice, and support as you navigate your journey through stroke recovery.

|display_description||"Dr. Mike Dow is a best-selling author, psychotherapist, and relationship expert. So why is he writing a book about stroke? Well, what you probably don't know about Dr. Mike is that his younger brother, David, is a stroke survivor. What's more, David's stroke happened when he only 10 years old. This means most of Dr. Mike's teenage years were spent witnessing what his family was dealing with trying to find the best treatments for David. He struggled to know what to do to help his brother. He watched helplessly as his brother wrestled with depression, trying to find the motivation to recover on top of the challenges of adolescence. He mourned the loss of what could have been--and he was angry. How his family would have loved to sit down with top experts in stroke to find out what they should be doing and have their questions answered. Now Dr. Mike has the ability to do just that, and he's doing it so that others in his family's position don't have the same struggle. Armed with questions from stroke survivors and their loved ones, Dr. Mike talks with the best clinicians across the country to get over 100 answers you need to know to maximize your recovery"--|
