Leg Exercises for Stroke Patient

Stroke almost always result in some paralysis on one side of the body resulting in loss of function and mobility in the leg and /or arm. However, this loss isn’t necessarily permanent and there is a window of opportunity (around 6 months) for the brain and body to re-learn to use these muscles. Your physiotherapist will do exercises to keep these muscles toned and stimulated to prevent muscle contracture, strengthen your muscles and to train the limbs to regain voluntary movement.

Long-term progress depends on a consistent & regular physical therapy regimen in the first few months. This video is to encourage you do your own exercises at home as guided by your physiotherapist who will tell you how often and for how long.
