Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center Uses Painting for Stroke

by Danice Agolo on Dec 6, 2019, 09:31 AM

Strokes for Stroke encourages rehabilitation through art. The program is designed for all levels of stroke recovery and no previous art experience is required. Special focus is given on techniques that help stimulate brain function and improve hand-eye coordination. Research shows that painting and art therapy can be an enjoyable way to enhance rehabilitation for stroke patients. The event also gives stroke survivors and caregivers an opportunity to socialize with others who share similar interests and experiences. All levels of skill and mobility are invited to participate.

Karen Kile, Director of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, said the museum is so happy to partner with Sierra Vista for Strokes for Stroke, “Making art accessible to as many people as possible makes SLOMA more dynamic as a cultural institution.”

According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is one of the leading causes of death and serious, long-term disability in the United States. Stroke survivors often face difficulty with coordination and in many cases, depression. A 2015 study from the National Institute of Health showed that creative art therapy combined with conventional physical therapy can significantly decrease depression, improve physical functions and increase quality of life compared with physical therapy alone. Strokes for Stroke is complimentary. Registration is required: (844) 673-4320.

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center recently received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, which recognizes the hospital’s commitment to leadership in stroke care in San Luis Obispo County and success in ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment.

In addition, a specialized group of interventional neurologists has joined the Sierra Vista team to bring endovascular treatment for stroke patients to the Central Coast. The treatment is called mechanical thrombectomy, which allows physicians to directly remove blood clots in the brain more quickly and effectively. With this new service and skilled specialists, emergency air and ambulance transports out of the county may be eliminated and precious time saved for stroke patients.
