I suffered a right sided ischemic stroke (carotid dissection) on August 3, 2007 at the age of 35. I spent the subsequent 2+ years trying various rehabilitative approaches: traditional PT/OT, e-stim, botox, feldenkrais, and mirror box therapy. I am a musician (guitarist) and would like to get better so that I may someday play again.
