Anyone who has had a heart attack knows that recovery can take a long time, and patients who have finished physical therapy may find that what they have already done is not enough. If this is the case for you (or if you know someone who has this problem), reading Stroke Recovery: Regaining Arm Movement by Tracy L. Markley is a good choice. As the title explains, this book aims at helping patients who need to recover the use of their arms. With its anatomy and exercise section, this book is informative and practical at the same time.
Stroke Recovery is a book that can really help patients who do not know what else to do once they have finished their physical therapy. Tracy L. Markley is a fitness instructor, and thanks to her experience, she provides sound advice to stroke survivors. Most of all, I like her pointing out that every patient has their own specific needs and that not everyone requires the same exercise. Also, I appreciate that she describes the various elements in the anatomy section in a simple way so that patients can understand how nerves and muscles work. In this way, it is easier for them to become more aware of what they have to do for a better recovery. As for the exercises, I think they are a valuable resource for those who need them. Overall, I am sure that Stroke Recovery will be a great companion for many people who have not gotten enough physical therapy.
