Walking May Help Prevent Stroke And Help Stroke Survivors
DALLAS, TEXAS – A new study conducted by researchers from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica and published in the American Heart Association journal Stroke suggests regular, brisk walks may help reduce your risk of a stroke as well as help you recover if you’ve already suffered from a stroke.
The study explains walking daily helps blood flow and decrease risks of major health problems such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers and improving your immune system.
Furthermore, the study continues to say that people who may have already suffered from a stroke may recover quicker by taking daily walks.
Researchers divided 128 adult stroke survivors into a group that performed brisk outdoor walking three times a week for three months and a group that had therapeutic massage and no supervised exercise. Here are the results:
Compared to the massage group, the walking group:
· Reported a 16.7 percent improvement in quality of life based on physical health.
· Walked 17.6 percent farther in a six-minute endurance test.
· Had a 1.5 percent lower resting heart rate (the massage group’s resting heart rate was 6.7 percent higher).
Lead researcher of the study, Carron Gordon says:
“Walking can help control blood pressure, reduce lipid or fat levels and help with weight control – all cardiovascular risk factors, so doctors should encourage it for patients who have had a stroke.”
Experts also say that after a stroke, many people have less energy and are afraid of falling during physical activity. This often makes them miss out on activities that are more meaningful to them such as visiting friends, going to the store or going to family functions.
Although the study and its researchers encourage people (both before to help prevent a stroke and after to help recover from a stroke) to go on daily walks, it’s very important to talk to your doctor to see when is the right time for you to start participating in physical activity. When the time is right to start going for walks, here are some great ways to get your legs moving and enjoying the outdoors:
· Walk around your neighborhood
· Walk through a local park
· Walk through a garden
· Walk with your children or grandchildren
· Take your pet for a walk
