Abstract

Review question
We wanted to know if yoga helps to improve quality of life for stroke survivors.

Background
Stroke is a major health issue worldwide, which affects people in many different ways. For example, stroke survivors may have problems moving around, and communicating and socialising with other people. Stroke may also affect how people feel. It may cause problems with memory and concentration. After discharge from hospital or other stroke services, stroke survivors have to cope with the long-term effects of stroke. Research has shown that yoga can help people with other long-term conditions to cope better. Yoga can improve quality of life (QoL).
