Increased occurence of stroke

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show between 1994 and 2007 stroke hospitalizations increased 17% in females 15-34 years of age. Every year, strokes occur in 50,000 U.S. residents under 50 years of age.

Stroke recovery at any age

Are you just learning about Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) or the SaeboFlex and SaeboReach? Research shows physical therapy using CIMT and Saebo techniques can be beneficial at any age or length of time since a brain injury.

Techniques are innovative and different than traditional therapy for the arm and hand. It may be beneficial to try traditional physical therapy initially to see how much you can improve. Be sure to tell your therapist that you want to learn to use your affected arm and hand, not compensate with the unaffected side.

After you have plateaued in traditional therapy, consider CIMT or training with the Saebo orthosis. It’s an innovative, yet highly successful approach, focused on making a connection between your brain and muscles. Your brain is never too old to learn!
