The Successful Stroke Survivor is unique.
It is the first of its kind. It is a part-book and part-manual for those who have suffered a stroke and have reached the end of formal therapy. The highly motivational approach to functional training revealed inside is a distillation of many hundreds of innovative ways created to encourage positive adaptations in the brain after stroke.
Would you like to be able to get up from the floor without any support of any kind? YES!
Would you like to tackle spasticity in your hand? YES!
Would you like to become stronger and less dependent? YES!
The Successful Stroke Survivor will show you how, and much more.
Like the author, many stroke survivors want to retrain and improve. They want techniques evolved from real-life that people in the same situations have learned and had success with… which they can easily understand, adjust to their own physical limitations and practice.
The price of this book can be placed against a massive amount of time and money that it is possible to spend on future therapy and training.
