So thankful for these videos I had a stroke six weeks ago and before I ever got completely diagnosed my wife and I found these videos online and we started doing these exercises even before they diagnose me because we could tell all the symptoms And so when I got to physical and occupational therapy They said that the fact that I was doing these exercises ahead of time really helped in my progression I had absolutely no use of my right side for several weeks in now that I'm back to doing the exercises I'm ahead of the ball Thank you again
