The diagnosis of a neurological condition is life changing. Everyone will have a different experience. For some it may be a bolt from the blue: a stroke for example or another emergency situation. For others it may be a long road of hospital visits, tests and deteriorating health before a diagnosis is made. Whatever the circumstances it has a massive impact on lives. Family and friends may struggle to adjust to the ‘new you’ and your lifestyle may have drastically changed to accommodate your new capabilities.
For many people living with a neurological condition, or a life-limiting brain injury, the journey to recovery is physically and mentally challenging, life-changing and costly. Evidence shows that exercise is key to helping to maintain levels of ability and can improve long-term progress.
