Exercising Post Stroke:

Following a stroke you may experience weakness or paralysis in your leg or arm muscles; a loss of sensation or feeling; poor coordination and balance; muscle and joint stiffness; and lack of energy.

Incorporating exercise into your routine fairly soon after experiencing a stroke is important to help with recovery, and recover faster, as well as help reduce the risk of having another stroke.

Following a stroke your fitness level can decline, so getting back into exercise quickly helps to regain your fitness level. Different activities to help with recovery include using your effected arm and/or leg as much as you can helps gain back movement and prevents stiffness. Move any joints or muscles that are feeling stiff. Practise walking to regain balance.

Our trainers here at MacDonald & Woods Personal Training Rehab Clinic look forward to meeting with you and getting you started on your path to wellness and helping in your recovery post stroke.  To schedule your FREE CONSULT please contact us at 902-334-1720 or email
