Any Exercise is Good!
Richard C Senelick, MD posted:
A recent study looked at exercise in people with Parkinson's Disease, but I think the results are a clear message to stroke survivors. The study looked at high intensity versus low intensity work outs. The people who walked at a comfortable pace and did light weights had the most improvement.

The message is - keep moving. All exercise helps and it appears that "low intensity" exercise is just as effective as higher intensity exercises. You can forget the old mantra- no pain, no gain. Start a regular exercise program at home or in a group and keep it up.
