Reclaim Your Strength With Arm Exercises For Stroke Recovery  - Arm & Elbow Exercises for Stroke Recovery Survivors & Patients at Home

A stroke can often rob a patient of arm movement, making it difficult to perform simple tasks like moving the arm forward or grasping and releasing objects. Performing basic exercises at home, combined with continued healthcare and innovative Saebo products, empowers stroke survivors to restore normal function to their arms and improve their daily lives.

Simbarashe Shahwe, the Team Lead Physiotherapist at Boston Physiotherapy Ltd. , believes in the importance of exercise in stroke recovery. After seeing numerous patients who have struggled with arm control after a stroke, Shahwe has begun encouraging patients to focus on basic arm exercises for stroke recovery in order to build strength and renew the muscle-to-mind connections often lost after a stroke.

Every stroke is different, and every patient’s stroke recovery experience is, too. Just as your symptoms depend on the severity of the stroke and treatment you received, your ability to regain certain functions and work toward recovery will also depend on a variety of different physical factors. However, it helps to know a little more about what to expect in the days and weeks ahead.

You’ve learned about the different stages of stroke recovery, but in order to simplify this experience and improve recovery odds, it’s important to understand more about each stage. If a patient or loved one has recently experienced a stroke and lost motor control on one side of their body, they’re probably in Stage 1 of their recovery process.

But what exactly does “Stage 1” mean, and how can patients and their caregivers navigate this first chapter of the journey toward recovery? Let’s start by breaking down the nature of this first stage. After you understand the basics of your Stage 1 progress, start applying some of the most helpful recovery techniques to reach the second stage.

SaeboStim Micro

“I have been using the SaeboStim Micro in an outpatient rehabilitation setting and I am absolutely amazed by the immediate results. It works extremely well with patients diagnosed with central cord syndrome/spinal cord injury who have upper extremity sensory and motor loss. It also works well for the management of pain and sensory disturbance due to complex regional pain syndrome. Several patients have purchased their own SaeboStim Micro for home use and report weekly improvements in hand sensation. The SaeboStim Micro is an affordable choice and a great addition to an upper extremity sensory home program.”

SaeboStim Micro
After only 3 weeks of sessions with the SaeboStim Micro, this patient was able to use a spoon and eat with her affected hand! She could still feel the stimulation in her treated hand several hours after the device was removed, and continues to make progress toward achieving her goals.

 

 

 

 

He reported improvement after the first day!

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017


I recently used the SaeboStim Micro with a patient in his seventies who had a stroke (CVA) four months prior. He was receiving inpatient rehab at our skilled nursing facility.  He had made significant progress regaining motor function but continued to have impaired sensation in his hand. He reported a continuous tingling feeling. He also had difficulty distinguishing different sensations (sharp, dull, smooth, soft, hard, etc). This made many daily tasks harder. For example, buttoning a shirt took concentration as he struggled to feel the difference between the hard button and the pliable cloth. Many other tasks similarly took extra effort and time.

Following a neurological injury or disease, it is common for clients to experience impaired arm and hand function resulting in decreased sensation and/or strength. If the arm has limited use, this may lead to impaired communication to the brain, which includes sense of touch, feel, or awareness of movement.

I am very pleased with the results that I have gotten in such a short period of time

I am 43 years old and was recently the victim of a severe stabbing.  My forearm was cut all the way to the bone, severing two of the three major nerves in my arm. If it hadn’t been for the kindness of a stranger, I would have bled to death.  In the first five days after the stabbing, my doctors performed three surgeries on my arm.  Afterward, I was left with almost no feeling in my hand and very little functionality in my forearm or hand. My fingers had curled up into a fist, or what my doctors called a “claw hand.”
