Hand, arm and shoulder

The majority of stroke survivors will have problems with their upper limbs at some point – that's the arm, shoulder and hand. After all, it's why there's the letter A in FAST, which tells you the most common stroke symptoms to look out for – the others of course being face, speech and time to get treatment.

These problems include weakness, trouble coordinating movements, changes in muscle tone, subluxation, contracture, swelling, and reduced or increased sensation.

They make a big difference in your daily life, and they’re also very common concerns on enableme. That’s why in our next podcast we're going to try and answer your questions. Use the form below to tell us what you want to know about upper limb issues and recovery.
