Many stroke survivors experience physical side effects that impair their strength, balance, and mobility. This video explains how to stay safe and regain your physical health after experiencing a stroke.
Fall prevention is a major component of stroke recovery. Because a stroke can leave you feeling weak and uncoordinated, it can increase your risk of falling at home. To prevent falls, it’s important that you practice everyday movements. Sitting down and getting up from a couch or chair is one exercise that can help you regain your sense of balance. Reaching for common kitchen items is another activity that can enhance strength and flexibility.
