Welcome to our complete collection of exercises for stroke patients, where we will cover every muscle group from head to toe.
Let’s start with our foundation.
If you are starting with limited mobility, try these seated leg exercises that you can do from any comfortable seated position.
When you’re ready for a challenge, try these leg exercises from Liliana, DPT.
They’re also done from a seated position, but there are options to make each exercise easy or hard depending on your current mobility level.
For something easy, try these seated balance exercises.
If you have good core strength already, then refer to our advanced balance exercises. Each exercise includes an option to make it more difficult when you’re looking for a challenge.
Then, when you’re ready for a bigger challenge, we have some seated arm exercises that’ll really get your muscles working.
Wrist, Hand, and Finger Exercises
Now we’re ready to fine tune our abilities.
For your hands, we have 30+ hand therapy exercises for you to try. And if you’re looking for something with pictures, check out our therapy putty exercises that includes a free downloadable PDF!
We’re passionate about hand therapy because our rehabilitation device, MusicGlove, can help improve hand function with results in just 2 weeks! It’s fast and fun, and our patients love it.
Your eyes are controlled by muscles, and sometimes those muscles are weakened by stroke. Luckily, you can regain your vision after stroke by performing eye exercises.
Consistent, diligent eye exercise can help restore partial or total vision.
