Neurologists say that if they can treat a stroke victim within 3 hours, the effects of a stroke can be reversed - often totally.  Neurologists say that the trick is to get a stroke recognised/diagnosed and then get the patient medically cared for within 3 hours.

Act FAST

If you suspect that someone is having a stroke act FAST

With over 150,000 people in the UK having a stroke every year, it is imperative that people can recognise a stroke when it's happening and take prompt action.

Change position or activity at least every hour

Take regular exercise that you enjoy

During repetitive tasks: vary rhythm and take frequent breaks

On long journeys adjust car seats and take regular breaks to stretch and move around for a short time

Pace yourself with heavy work and take care when lifting

Watch your children’s posture - they shouldn’t spend too long at a computer or carry bags on one shoulder.

During pregnancy, osteopathy can help your body to adjust to the changes taking place

What is FAST?

FAST requires an assessment of three specific symptoms of stroke:

Facial weakness - can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?


Arm weakness - can the person raise both arms?


Speech problems - can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?

Time to call 999.

If the person has failed any one of these tests, you must call 999. Stroke is a medical emergency and by calling 999 you can help someone reach hospital quickly and receive the early treatment they need.
