I wanted to share what's helping me in therapy. Had an embolic stroke on Labor Day 2010 on the right side which in turn affected all motor skills on left side, dexterity, got restricted movement left arm,left leg, left hand and fingers. Started taking low-impact aerobics 3 times a week, with Yoga sandwiched in between 2 days a week. Haved regained stability, and now can walk unassisted, and function independently, still feel like I got along way to go but see slight improvement daily. Just wanted to share this!!
