The Successful Stroke Survivor Volume 5 Video Series: 39 minutes anytime online viewing OR a DVD

£ 7.90£ 20.10

On this DVD. Dr Tom starts to take you into the realms of upper limb training particularly for reach, grasp and release. This is very different to lower limb work in that no management strategies are taught – rather, you will learn how to tackle spasticity and flaccidity head-on so that you can recover function again. Essential stretches are shown here: these will help you to ‘get the gap’ between your thumb and fingers in order to grip. Without this, you can’t do anything with that hand. Stretches PLUS task-specific work have the potential to improve your function dramatically. This DVD shows you the vital first part.

  1. (Verified Purchase)

    This 38 min long video is again a never-miss piece, full of exercises that all focus on helping to get back the function of the upper limbs which is more difficult than regaining back the strength and function of the lower extremities. Bilateral training 3-4 days per week and 10-20 (or more) times a day is the key to success. Dr Tom with his demonstrations and explanations again gives you all the tools, tricks and encouragement to reach this goal.

  2. (Verified Purchase)

    These exercises have been paramount in improving the functional use of both my arm and hand. I would wholly recommend ‘DVD Volume 5’ to anyone who wishes to improve their condition, following a stroke.

    If you want to try and improve your function after your stroke this video is excelllent. Tom’s performing the activities and narration are great! There are no guarantees in stroke recovery but this video certainly gives hope and encouragement. Personally I am very pleased that my road to recovery is helped by this video.
