    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    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!!

    Keep it up. I posted a Tip on "All Exercise is Good," that validates what you are doing. Research suggests that low level exercise is just as effective in people with disabilities . Good Luck.
