Conditions that follow a stroke depend on the side of the brain that is most affected by the stroke. If the stroke affects the right side of the brain, typically the patient may experience problems with perception and coordination which can lead to diminished vision and balance. People who have suffered injury to the right side of their brain may also experience motor issues causing complications in many daily task like putting on clothes or using a writing utensil. Right brain injuries may also cause paralysis or palsy on the right side of the person’s body.
Injuries on the left side of the brain affect a stroke victim’s cognizance and linguistic capabilities causing severe problems with speech and memory. Left brain injuries are immediately apparent in social situations and can interfere with how a person assesses situations causing them to react and think more slowly than they did before. Just as right brain injuries cause paralysis and palsy on the right side of the body, left brain injuries may cause these complications on the left side of the body.
