The Successful Stroke Survivor DVD Volume 6
Stretching (DVD 5) AND task-specific/task-related intensive practice (this DVD) can initiate and encourage spasticity decline. This DVD is basically about how to tackle upper limb TRAINING, to assist with flaccidity and spasticity. It shows how to build (or get someone to build) task boards and challenge boards that can echo activities of daily life so that you can repeatedly practice your reaching, grasping and releasing. It goes on to show you what you can buy on Amazon in the area of wooden and plastic learning toys, for example, to progressively challenge hand function. These super strategies are the result of many years of experimentation and Dr Tom will show you how to get RESULTS. You will love this DVD and it is what upper limb training the ARNI way is all about. Globally, there is no one answer to recovery of loss of upper limb control. However, the strategies you will find here to do yourself or with the help of a physio, trainer or friend, are the evidence base, now welded to a series highly innovative ideas, strategies and exercises. DVD 7 (Training with Tom) also shows these in action with a patient who has significant spasticity.
If you have upper limb difficulties, this is the DVD that will be your ally. Here, Dr Tom shows you how you, too, can get as excellent function back in your upper limb as he has. He shows you what he did to gain function and shows tools that he has built to help survivors train their reach, grasp and release. He then shows you exactly how to make or acquire what you need to do what many hundreds of people have used to significantly (and very quickly) to reduce spasticity and flaccidity – and to gain control again of your more-affected hand.
