Hemiparesis Exercise Program

by Herbert Vaughan, M.D.
(Stamford, CT USA)

Question: I have a left hemiparesis from an embolic stroke in 1998. My arm is completely paralyzed but I can walk with a quad cane or hemi walker. My question regards an exercise program to strengthen my left leg. Is there a website with a good hemiparesis exercise program that I can try? I'll look around for one on the web, which I'm sure will be found there.


Answer: Here are a few websites with exercises:
