OUR IMPACT TO DATE
We are very proud of the impact that our exercise after stroke services has had in Edinburgh. Here we will outline some of our work and how it is making a difference for people affected by stroke.
Stroke Rehabilitation Classes
The aim of our exercise after stroke service is to help people exercise in order: to improve health, physical fitness, strength, balance and/or walking ability; to reduce their risk of falls or injuries; to improve confidence and wellbeing; to help people exercise safely and effectively. To date, we have helped 40 stroke survivors who were discharged from the NHS but still wanted to continue their rehabilitation.ENQUIRE HERE
Next Best You Events
We have now successfully ran two “Next Best You Obstacle Course Races” in Edinburgh for people with physical and mental challenges. The race consists of 12 stages which become progressively harder to achieve.
The focus is on challenging limiting beliefs around rehab potential and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for people with mental and physical impairments to take part in a race. Instead of racing against each other, we encourage them to return next year to try and beat their previous best!BOOK FREE CONSULTATION

Coming Soon… Online Exercise After Stroke
Health by Science is currently creating a free open-access ‘Online Stroke Rehab Service’. This is a pilot stroke rehab service that we are developing in collaboration with stroke survivors and Physiotherapists. We are aiming to deliver this new service in the first quarter of 2022.BOOK FREE CONSULTATION
