A stroke in the left hemisphere generally causes paralysis of the right side of the body (right hemiplegia) and various language disorders that we know generically by the term aphasia.
When the stroke happens in the cerebellum, this will cause problems with lack of coordination, imbalance, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.
Strokes located in the brain stem can be more serious. The control of all involuntary functions such as breathing, heartbeat, blood pressure, etc. is found in this area. In addition, it also controls functions such as swallowing, speech, hearing and eye movements. In addition, the pathways that carry information from the cerebral hemispheres pass through the brain stem to the extremities, so an injury to them also lead to paralysis of one or two hemibodies.
Scientific studies show that in any of these cases the earlier a suitable neurorehabilitation treatment is started by an expert multidisciplinary team, the better the long-term functional results.
