Benefits of walking for stroke victims

Posted: Updated:

A brisk walk could do more than clear your head. It could also help those who have suffered from a stroke.

Researchers studied nearly 130 people who had suffered from strokes. All were able to walk with or without help.

After a three month study, the half who walked 15 minutes three times a week reported a better quality of life. They were also able to walk farther in a future endurance test.
