FAQ'S

1.  WHAT KIND OF THERAPY IS AVAILABLE TO ME POST-STROKE?

  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are great resources to help you gain your independence back
  • Getting involved in clinical trials

2.  HOW ARE MY BALANCE AND GAIT AFFECTED?

  • The part of your brain that controls balance and gait may be affected after your stroke.  As a result, your risk of falling is very high.  You may feel unsteady and notice that the way you walked before is different post-stroke.

3.   HOW WILL MY GAIT BE DIFFERENT?

  • Depending on the severity of your stroke, your gait may not look as symmetrical. It is common to have a slower gait and you may find yourself putting less weight on your affected side. Your overall step length and stride may also be shorter with your affected side. This can result in a loss of confidence during ambulation.
