    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Richard C Senelick, MD responded:
    It is very difficult to give advice on the type of rehabilitation program you would need without actually examining you. There is no question that exercise is important and people can continue to improve for years after a stroke. I like to have patients check in every few months with a rehabilitation physician and therapist to see if their program should be modified. If you haven't done that yet, I would make an appointment to see if you should be adding anything to your program. Good luck.
