Stroke Recovery Training

Do you want to offer more stroke recovery training options for your clients with better results?

Did you know that we have 7 million stroke survivors in the United States? Unfortunately, those stroke survivors can sometimes be met with extremely limited physical therapy options. In turn, they along with many stroke survivor caregivers are seeking out fitness professionals for help. With over 20 years in the fitness industry, Tracy Markley, CPT, has developed the Stroke Recovery Training course to bring knowledge, experience, and exercises to help fitness professionals guide a stroke survivor to a better recovery.

As a fitness provider, what will you learn? You will learn about stroke statistics, brain damage, and neuroplasticity. Additionally, you will be equipped with how to communicate and train a survivor who has spasticity, limited arm movements, foot drop, walking gait, hyperextended knees, balance challenges, aphasia, memory issues, and more. Included in the course is a large section with muscle illustrations and biomechanics of the body’s movements to help you put together programs for a stroke survivor.
