Research shows that group singing can help stroke recovery.
Occupational therapy can help you adjust to life after stroke by giving you the confidence and skills to perform daily tasks. This guide explains what to expect from occupational therapy and how you can find an occupational therapist.
As well as reducing independence, walking problems after stroke lead to lower daily activity, increasing risk of further stroke and health problems. A promising method of improving walking after stroke is through ‘auditory rhythmical cueing.’ which involves people walking to the rhythm of a sound beat.
A system of supported decision making and self-management for the prevention of secondary stroke.
Stroke Association Voluntary Groups are supported by a range of resources and specialist training opportunities.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
Stroke survivors can be referred to Moving Forward After Stroke for a 12-week exercise programme. Exercise can help reduce the risk of an individual suffering a second stroke, and helps survivors to overcome challenges they face following the physical impact of their stroke.
Affiliated Independent Stroke Clubs are supported by a wide range of resources and specialist training opportunities.
First results from the AVERT, early rehabilitation trial were unveiled at the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESO) today.
Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
