The exercises in this bookshould be repeated and practicedas often as possible; this can helpbuild new pathways in your brain.After a stroke you will have to relearncorrect movement again. Your brainprocesses sensory information throughyour eyes, ears, skin, joints, andmuscles, helping you to move correctly.Movements you used to do easily willbe more difficult. Your weak side mustrelearn what to do and how to do it.Some people find it helpful to thinkabout how their strong side doesthe movement, before trying thatmovement with their weak side.Some of these exercises can be donealone while others will require someassistance. Feedback from a familymember, friend, or carer can be veryhelpful when trying these movements/exercises.

14Effects of a StrokeA stroke is the result of damage to nervecells in the brain caused by either: A blockage of a blood vessel or Bleeding into the brainEither of these can result in difficultieswith movement. A bleed or blockage onone side of the brain affects movementon the opposite side of the body. This isknown as hemiplegia: ‘hemi’ half and‘plegia’ paralysis. One side of the bodyis weaker. The problems caused by strokeare different for everyone. They can varyfrom mild to severe and may include: Muscle weakness, or slowness ofmovement of the-- Arm and leg-- Trunk-- Face and tongue Changes in muscle stiffness (this can varyfrom floppy to very stiff) Poor balance Decreased coordination Tremor/shaking (of your arm or leg) Loss of awareness/neglect of theweak side Numbness or tingling Decreased awareness of temperature,pressure, or pain Difficulties judging your position in spaceand distance from objects Double vision Nystagmus: uncontrolled left/right orup/down eye movements Visual field loss: able to see only part ofwhat is actually being looked at Sensitivity to light, especiallybright sunlight Extreme tiredness/fatigue Decreased concentration Changes in mood Changes in behaviour and personality Difficulty expressing yourself or finding ithard to understand others.Communication difficulty can be distressing and frustratingso as soon as possible, get the assistance of a SpeechLanguage Therapist. They can help you to communicateeffectively. It is also important that you and your family knowthat your intelligence has not changed. Speech LanguageTherapists can also help with any eating difficulties.

15Activities andExercising at HomeRecovery of movement continues fora long time after stroke. Once you arehome it is important to exercise andpractice moving every day. Exercisefollowing stroke has beneficial effectsnot only on movement and balance buton circulation and the health of theheart. With practice, movements thatseem difficult at first become easier. It is best to exercise in loose comfortableclothing and no shoes Think about the activity before doing it.Planning a movement helps you to do itmore easily Practice the movement-- At first you may need to get the feel of themovement by doing it with your strong side-- When doing it with your weak side,look at that side to make it easier-- Your helper may need to help andguide you to get a better movement Feedback will help you to know how wellyou are doing Find just the right level of effort in order toachieve the movement without strain Weak muscles easily become tired ifworked too hard. At first don’t do morethan a few minutes at a time to avoidmuscle tiredness Frequently after stroke, too much effortcauses the muscles on both sides ofthe joint to tighten so that very littlemovement actually occurs. Some muscles,especially those of the arm and hand, tendto become particularly tight and will needto be stretched on a daily basis Always picture in your mind both sides ofyour body working togetherCorrect muscle length is an importantpart of normal movement. If muscleson one side of a joint are too shortthose on the other side cannot workwell against that resistance. Followinga stroke, stiff muscles tend to becomeshorter and stiffer over time.Maintaining muscle length as closeto normal as possible is thereforeessential. This can be done by slow,gentle stretching of tight muscles whichallows the opposite muscle group to doits job and move the joint more easily.If you are having any difficultiesor are unsure of the exercisesin this booklet please contactyour local physiotherapist.INFORMATION FOR YOUR CARER/HELPERWhen helping with these exercises, if you are unsure aboutwhether the movement is correct, try the exercise yourself first.You will then be able to help the person move more normally.Telling the person when it looks correct can also be helpful.

In order to sit up straightit is important to know where the mid-line of your body is. Try using a mirror(though some people find this confusing rather than helpful).If it is still difficult to sit in the mid-line it could be due to: Being either too weak, too stiff, or fearful Left-sided neglect (when you “forget” about the weak side,cannot feel it, look away from it) Difficulty understanding where your body should be in space1.

34Exercises for Strengthand ControlIt is important to select the right exercisefor your stage of recovery. If you havedoubts about what you can do, stick tothe simple basic exercises and work onthem until you are confident that youare doing them correctly. Only thenshould you move on to the next level.The number of times you can repeatan exercise depends on your abilityat the time. Often at the beginning, 3repetitions will be all you can do. Restfor 20 seconds and try again. Aim toincrease to 10 repetitions. Avoid fatigue.There are many ways to improve strengthand awareness of your weak side. Ifyou have good recovery of movementand can do most basic activities,strengthening can be done by usingequipment such as weights. Somepeople like using gym equipment.There is often a pattern of recoverywhich results in some muscles workingquite well and others poorly or notat all. Exercise should be directedtoward strengthening specificmovements. An arm or leg that hasincreased muscle stiffness requiresearly stretching and positioning.

35If it is hard for you to start a movementdue to weakness then a physiotherapistcan help you with the following: Press down through your arm,leg, or body to help muscleswork and improve sensation andawareness of your arm and leg Use ‘overflow’ from strong to weakmuscles (do the movement withboth sides of your body.

Itis important to concentrate on openingthe hand because the grasping musclestend to become short and tight.Be aware of the tension that mightcome into your arm when you attempttasks that may be too hard. If yourarm gets tighter, stop and stretch yourmuscles before you begin again.Think about using your arm andattempt to use it.
