Decreased balance is a common area affected by stroke. Many patients are prone to falling which could lead to serious injuries. Studies have shown that stroke survivors are twice as likely to fall following a stroke and more than three times as likely as the general population to fall multiple times. About 40 percent of stroke survivors have serious falls within a year of their stroke.
To prevent or reduce falls and improve balance, it will be important for you to perform routine balance exercises. Below are examples of simple and affordable solutions to help you with your balance home exercise program.
