Stroke Association

Exercise can help to reduce the risk of stroke by up to 25%. Even if patients find it difficult to move around after a stroke, it is likely there is some form of suitable exercise.

The Stroke Association have created a guide that explains how exercise can improve your patients’ health and suggests types of activities. The guide also lists a variety of organisations and resources that can help you support patients to find the right forms of exercise from gentle exercise classes to sports clubs and groups.
