A stroke is caused by interruption of blood flow to the brain or rupture of blood vessel in the brain. According to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada, "If you are having difficulty moving around, using an arm or leg, getting your balance or coordinating your movements, a physiotherapist will be able to help you. He or she will teach you special exercises and techniques to improve muscle control, balance, mobility and walking."
