Different Stages Of Stroke Recovery, Mostly Patients Might Be Unaware

Stage 1: Flaccidity 

The information on stroke shows that initial period of shock immediately after stroke where flaccid paralysis sets in.  This paralysis is caused by nerve damage that prevents the muscles from receiving appropriate signals from the brain, whether or not the brain is still capable of moving those muscles.In the early state of flaccid paralysis, the stroke survivor cannot initiate any muscle movements on the affected side of their body.

If this continues for long enough without intervention or physical therapy, the unused muscles become much weaker, and begin to atrophy. Simply put, muscles need to be used in order to retain their tone and definition, and flaccid paralysis prevents muscles from doing this important work.
