Post Stroke Exercise Videos

Stroke survivors are at high risk for falls. In fact, up to 73% of stroke survivors experience a fall in the first six months after discharge home.  Common physical effects of stroke are muscle weakness and less control of an affected arm or leg. Survivors often work with therapists to restore strength and control through exercise programs. They also learn skills to deal with the loss of certain body movements. 

Rehabilitation is an important step during a stroke survivor’s road to recovery and these exercises can serve as a general guide. Please speak with your health care provider and/or physical therapist before performing any of these exercises.
