EXERCISE AS MEDICINE NZ

SURVIVE AND THRIVE

Exercise for those who are recovering from a stroke.

Caused by a sudden interruption of blood flow to the brain, a stroke is a neurological injury (a brain attack) that, depending on the areas of the brain that are affected, can impact physical and cognitive function.

The brain is plastic and, given the right input and a high degree of repetition, it can make new neural pathways to replace some of those that have been damaged (neuroplasticity). The degree to which recovery is possible depends on numerous factors, but doing nothing is unlikely to achieve much.
