Exercise

We know managing and aiding recovery at home, especially during the hard times brought on by COVID and many other disruptions to everyday life. We have a few suggestions that could help you manage each day.

Practice Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are small, precise movements you make with your hand and fingers. You can build this skill by tracing a design with a pen, shuffling cards, or picking up small beans and putting them in a cup. As with all rehabilitation exercises, repetition is important to help retrain your brain. You need to practice daily, this collection.

How to deal with Spasticity, Weakness, and Paralysis with exercise after a Stroke:

Many people lose the use of their arm and hand after a stroke. Many also experience   uncontrollable muscle tightness, and stiffness, which make movement difficult. According to studies, experts estimate that 20-50% of stroke survivors have some spasticity. Paralysis or weakness on one side of the body happens to about 80% of people.

Exercise helps you rebuild your strength. Strengthening the muscles in your hand and arm will help improve your grip and ability to use your limb. An early arm exercise involves holding your weak arm with your strong arm and rocking it back and forth like a baby. As you gain strength and mobility, you can use squeeze balls, wrist weights, or hand weights to tone and build muscle.

Stretching:

Stretching exercises promote blood flow and make it easier to move your arm. You can start by gently stretching your hand, arm, and shoulder in a full range of motion. Also you can use your unaffected hand to gently stretch the wrist, fingers, and thumb on your opposite hand

Doing these daily should hopefully aid in your everyday life.
