Recovering from a stroke requires lots of dedication and hard work. All brain injuries effects people differently; these are the exercises that helped me.
First thing, don’t start with difficult exercises. It takes time to rewire and train the brain to do new tasks. Choose an exercise that you can do at least 3-5 times a day with many repetitions. Always keep yourself loose and stretched-out, this will help from feeling run-down and will make all your exercising easier, as time goes on you will see more results.
*The first few days I started with is laying my hand flat on a table surface; palms down. This might require help from another person. Muscles get tight when they are not used, even if you help moving your hand around with your other hand this will help your muscles relax. If no one is around to help you do your best.
*Spread your fingers apart the best you can.
*Lift one finger at a time; don’t overdo it. The point is to stretch the muscle in your hand and fore arm.
This is enough for today. Practice this step 3-5 times a day; come back for my next exercise.
