One of the most common problems with stroke patients is spasticity (tight or hypertonic muscles). But not all stroke patients are spastic. There are some that are flaccid (weak and hypotonic muscles). In cases where there is a spastic leg, stretching of the hip and leg muscles is important. This is to facilitate standing and walking upright. Having that said, this program can help address this problem. However, this is not the only problem that needs to be addressed in order to regain mobility and function of a stroke person. While the focus of stroke recovery is often on the limbs, without a strong core, the rest of the body may suffer. By isolating and activating core muscles, stroke survivors can work to regain coordination and strength that benefits their whole body.
