HealthDay - Magnetic Brain Stimulation Might Aid Stroke Recovery: Study

 – June 27, 2013  –– 

Magnetic stimulation of the brain appears to help speed recovery of speech and language in stroke survivors, according to a study published in Stroke. "The findings indicate that transcranial magnetic stimulation is important to use early, but that's also when we see the greatest improvement in our patients both naturally and with the help of speech therapy,” said Kristjan Ragnarsson, MD, Chairman of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who was not involved in the study.
