The 5 Volumes are all that those who have suffered a stroke and have reached the end of formal therapy need to recover AT HOME after therapy finishes. This Volume is set as in a Manual format, with strategies for lower-body action control training complimented by hundreds of illustrations which break down parts of the movement you are working on. THESE ILLUSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY CREATED SO THAT EACH ONE TAKES UP A WHOLE KINDLE PAGE. THIS ALLOWS YOU TO USE THE BOOK LIKE A ‘FLIP BOOK’ TO WALK YOU THROUGH EACH SEQUENCE, ALL YOU THEN NEED TO DO IS TO TRY IT. You can keep the Kindle with you to check as you exercise. What kinds of strategies are shown? For example, many stroke survivors would like to be able to learn how to get down and up from the floor without support, balance better and walk properly without a stick, control drop-foot and regain strength in the back and front of the ‘bad’ leg. This manual takes you from an easy-to-learn ‘sit to stand’ strategy through all sorts of functional movement techniques such as retraining the ability to cope with a fall, innovative balance training, retraining the ability to turn on the spot, widening your stance laterally and retraining the ability to tackle steps. Great emphasis is placed on retraining lower body strength via using your own bodyweight. This is the complete lower-body retraining system that Volumes 1 to 3 have described and built up to. No one system can be suitable for a 90 year old and a 10 year old, so in this manual there is more than enough for everyone, however well (or not) you have recovered from stroke to date, IF YOU ARE REALLY WANTING TO DO BETTER. It is a source book from which you need to choose a few exercises to ‘plug’ into the blank training format shown in Volume 3. You might choose to do 5 things. Or just one thing. ONE THING IS GUARANTEED, OR YOU CAN HAVE YOUR MONEY BACK. IT WILL WORK, IF YOU DO.
