It outlines a systematic plan to help restore normal living developed by healthcare professionals active in Australia stroke support groups. They are joinded by a Feldenkrais practitioner and a naturopathic physician who describe bodywork and nutritional approaches to complement conventional medicine. After a Stroke will help you understand limitations, effects and recovery prognosis of different kinds of strokes; locate movement therapies and body work to stimulate and re-educate the brain and neural-limb coordination; organize a "health team" blending the best of current orthodox medicine with the bext of traditional, natural therapies; and chart daily patient progress with worksheets, charts and tables.
