Each year more than 795,000 Americans suffer from stroke and 40% of stroke survivors suffer a fall within a year after their stroke, according to the National Stroke Association.
Hemiparesis, the most common movement impairment suffered by stroke survivors, occurs when a person experiences weakness or the inability to move their facial muscles, arms, hands, legs, or feet one one side of their body. This causes activities of daily living that would otherwise be considered easy, extremely difficult. Without supervision, Hemiparesis can be dangerous. The person’s lack of coordination makes them more vulnerable to a serious fall. This article talks more about Hemiparesis symptoms, treatment, and management.
