"My mission is to let people know this is not true," says Burleigh Jacobs, 53, who holds a doctorate in neuroscience and physiology.
"We used to believe the adult nervous system was fixed," Burleigh Jacobs says. "It's not." "It is important to recognize that while many brain cells die," Burleigh Jacobs says, "many others go electrically silent in an effort to survive." While stroke recovery may be long and difficult, the brain has the capacity to reorganize itself by switching on silent cells and forming new neural connections throughout life, according to Burleigh Jacobs. Part of recovery is retraining and rewiring the brain. Burleigh Jacobs has made it her life's work to teach stroke survivors and health professionals worldwide how to retrain the brain and body after neurological damage. Her background includes a degree in physical therapy from the University of Colorado and a doctorate from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. After researching, working, teaching and lecturing in Europe and several U.S. states, Burleigh Jacobs settled with her husband and two daughters in the Silicon Valley. In 1999 she co-founded the Peninsula Stroke Association and for three years served as its executive director. She also maintained a private clinic in Los Altos. But she and her family grew tired of their busy urban lifestyle. They escaped to the mountains almost every weekend and started to plan a small cabin. Cabin plans became house plans. Seven years ago, when their eldest daughter was starting high school and their younger daughter middle school, the family moved to Tuolumne. Burleigh Jacobs now sees patients in private practice and at Sonora Regional Medical Center. "It used to be older people," Burleigh Jacobs says. The primary risk factor for ischemic stroke is high blood pressure, says Burleigh Jacobs. Even those who have few risk factors are not immune to stroke and should be aware of the symptoms, warns Burleigh Jacobs. Just as each stroke victim is unique, so too is the rate and extent of recovery. "Sometimes recovery means regaining past abilities, and sometimes it means learning new ways," says Burleigh Jacobs. Burleigh Jacobs says recovery can take years, and the process is different for each person. "If you have five people who can't walk, the treatment for each is different, based on their individual presentation," she says. Burleigh Jacobs advises survivors to simply ask, "What is my first goal?" "Let the goals be small at first," she adds. "Build on each small success." Anne Burleigh Jacobs' book on stroke recovery, Highs, Lows and Plateaus: A Path to Recovery from Stroke, is available online. She also writes a blog with recovery tips and information at authoranneburleighjacobs.wordpress.com.

Anne Burleigh Jacobs, PT, PhD
If there's anyone who can tell you how to do something as challenging as recovering from a stroke, it would be Dr. Jacobs. Her expertise in physical therapy is underscored by 25 years of practice, along with being a co-founder of the Pacific Stroke Association, as well as being a contributor to a neuroscience textbook. GTN News recentlytalked to Dr. Jacobs about her book, which breaks down simple steps to recovering from strokes and other brain/spinal column injuries in a very welcoming, conversational style.
