I wanted to share what's helping me in therapy. Had an embolic stroke on Labor Day 2010 on the right side which in turn affected all motor skills on left side, dexterity, got restricted movement left arm,left leg, left hand and fingers. Started taking low-impact aerobics 3 times a week, with Yoga sandwiched in between 2 days a week. Haved regained stability, and now can walk unassisted, and function independently, still feel like I got along way to go but see slight improvement daily. Just wanted to share this!!View Thread

The stroke attacked the right side which is affecting my left side. Have been rehabing every since, have recovered somewhat, can walk now unassisted, can take a shower(without falling) trying to get back to work, don't have insurance or no resources, can anyone tell me what I should look for next. Have applied Social Security disability benefits. Is there any available resources that can help me.View Thread
Recently had a stoke on Labor Day caused by high blood pressure issue. Going to therapy daily, have recovered my walking unassisted skills,attributed this to low stress aerobics and Tai Chai. I'm 56 year old male, can someone in this community give me advice on recovery and what to expect long-term, remaining optimistic that I'll recover enough to pursue employment. Any advice out there to what I'll be able to do physically would be greatle appreciated.View Thread
