Having suffered a stroke 5 months earlier, I had become concerned by the lack of progress I was making. I began looking for other resources that I could draw upon to supplement my Health Service Physiotherapy. I was fortunate enough to come across the excellent book “THE SUCCESSFUL STROKE SURVIVOR” BY DR TOM BALCHIN.
I found the book to be a great resource of exercises, practical advice and inspiration. I credit the book with helping me improve my ability to get around with less effort. Having had positive results following Dr Balchin’s Advice in his book I decided to attend a one-day training course run by Dr Balchin.
Being based in Aberdeen and not having flown since my stroke it was quite an undertaking for me, however I am delighted to have made the effort because I found the day to be hugely beneficial in terms of how my recovery could be enhanced by Dr Balchin’s techinques and exercises. There were 5 other therapists there to help me.
Subsequent to attending the course I received personally designed exercise program from DR Balchin that will allow me to maximise my recovery potential.
