Physical Fitness Training After Stroke

Stroke is the leading cause of death in United States and the second leading cause of death in the world. Globally, 15-million people suffer a stroke each year. Of those 15-million, approximately 6-million die and 5-million are disabled. Following a stroke, physical therapy commonly focuses addressing persons’ impairments to enable patients to reach their fullest potential. This is not enough! Prevention of a secondary stroke is essential as the first 2-years following a stroke the risk of recurrence is 25%; within 5 years it is up to 40%. Secondary prevention is critical and can be built into physical therapy through exercise, stress, weight, and hypertension management, and patient education. Through this continuing education module physical fitness after stroke will be addressed.
