Yoga Improves Balance for Stroke Survivors
Mind-Body-Spirit News:An adaptive group yoga program for stroke survivors has the potential to improve balance, reduce fear of falling and improve quality of life, according to a new study. Chronic stroke patients are those who survive a stroke for more than 6 months. Studies show that 83% of people who have had a stroke will experience balance problems and 73% are likely to experience a fall. Current clinical practice guidelines from 2005 recommend balance training for people with poststroke balance impairment; however, no specific balance training recommendations are available.
