From Stroke to Exercise Recovery.
"I can’t emphasize enough that this will work for you. Im 37 years old and I also had a stroke AND THIS WORKS, 100%. Im now at the point where I’m still very weak and need these exact exercises to connect my brain and body to continue on my journey. I’m just out of therapy, and this a great replacement to add in your routine. I know this is just for MS patients but I have to tell you that stroke survivors, in conjunction with your therapist can and should do this once you are cleared by your therapist/doctor." - Nicole Jones
