Pain after stroke

 

Download the transcript

Pain is common after stroke. It can start while the body is healing, but it can also stick around long term. When it does, it makes daily life difficult, and can wear you down over time. But even if you can't make your pain go away, it's still possible to do something about it.

In this podcast, we speak to pain experts about reducing pain levels and improving your quality of life. Our guests are:

  • Brendon Haslam, a physiotherapist and researcher on pain after stroke, focusing on neurological causes and treatment of upper limb pain.
  • Emma Gee, a stroke survivor, occupational therapist, inspirational speaker and author of Reinventing Emma.
  • Simone Russell, an occupational therapist from the Stroke Foundation’s StrokeLine.

You can purchase Emma’s book at her website, emma-gee.com (use the code RE2017NSF at checkout to get free shipping within Australia).

To take part in Brendon’s research on upper limb pain, see his Stroke Laterality Study web page.
