Welcome back to the Healthy Life Podcast.... one of the biggest challenges related to stroke rehabilitation is movement and the regaining of proper movement and control.there are several things that you must be aware of...
1. You had to originally develop that movement that took 15+ years to master
2. Your body must heal
I must seem like a broken record at times but in order for our body to function appropriately it needs to be healthy and have the appropriate materials at hand to do the job required. When we suffer a stroke many things occur in the body for a multitude of reasons. When we are treated the treatment is triaged so that healing is not considered. They attempt to determine the cause and treat that... (hint 25% of all strokes are from unknown origins)... by the time they employ rehabilitation they have already set their goals and have unfortunately limited results.
You can overcome this by encouraging healing.
Today we talk about the wrist. When it comes to the wrist... it is a joint that is downline from the shoulder, and elbow so movement in these joints is critical first. Because we have listeners at all levels I will lay out exercises for the wrist but I will lay out basics for warm up and if you lack mobility and movement start here.
Unless you are specifically working on your wrist then intersperse these exercises with others. Our DO app will have specific exercise routines you can implement. Keep in mind that you are responsible for your own body and the routines you choose. We are happy to inform and suggest but when you are in your own home you decide.
Thanks for joining me and exploring how you can exercise your wrist... if these are too advanced then do the warm ups and maximize rebuilding of data streams and the mind/muscle connection.
