A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked or bursts. Without blood and the oxygen it carries, part of that area starts to die. The part of the body controlled by the damaged area of the brain can't work properly.

Damage from a stroke can begin within minutes, so it is important to know the symptoms of stroke and act fast. Therapy can help limit damage to the brain and increase the chance of a full recovery.
