What is the massage for stroke

Under the direction of Dr. Stephanie S. Y. Au-Yeung gave 136 people who had a stroke at least six months ago a twelve-week exercise. One group of the test subjects did an unspecified training, the second group practiced an adapted form of Tai Chi.

The latter practiced their exercises under supervision for an hour a week and an additional three hours at home during the week. While there was only a minimal improvement in balance in the first group, the Tai Chi group achieved significant success in balance-oriented tests (e.g. shifting weight, balance on a moving platform).

This research is based on evidence that tai chi can improve balance in healthy elderly people. Stroke patients with balance disorders were expected to improve through regular tai chi. The participating scientists saw the advantage of this form of movement in its easy learnability and independent implementation.

Stroke - Adapted training sessions for rapid rehabilitation

Regular exercise and targeted physical training should not only be considered as a form of therapy, but should be a natural part of our everyday life. Healthy lifestyle choices are critical to preventing stroke, recovering from one stroke and preventing another, said Ian Joiner, head of Canada Heart and Stroke Foundation, in a press release.

These studies clearly show how important regular exercise and sporting activity are for the patient after a stroke,

also said Dr. Mark Bayley, Co-Rector of the Canadian Stroke Congress and Medical Director of the Neurological Rehabilitation Program at Toronto Rehab. The need for physical support after a stroke may not be new, but targeted exercises as part of the rehabilitation of stroke patients are often neglected. Dr. Susan Marzolini therefore emphasizes:

Adapted training sessions are absolutely essential for patients who have suffered a stroke because we firmly believe that they offer great health benefits.
