Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer discounts for disadvantaged individuals?
As a Social Enterprise our main focus is reinvesting our profits back into our social cause, which is to help stroke survivors.
We offer a select number of stroke survivors 50% off our services if they can’t afford our normal rates. Please contact us if you would like to apply for this discount.
We appreciate getting private Physiotherapy isn’t cheap but unfortunately, the costs of running a business are not cheap either.
Longer-term, however, we would like to increase our social impact by opening up a second rehabilitation facility in Edinburgh, just like the one we have been running in Edinburgh successfully for the past 5 years.
As soon as we have the funds we will invest the money into this new facility so that we can put on more small group classes (max of 4 people). This will then allow us to keep the quality of our services very high whilst keeping the costs down.
How much can I recover from my stroke?
Every stroke is different but there are some reliable predictors of stroke recovery. These include:
- Seriousness of the stroke
- Type of stroke – intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) strokes have a better recovery than cerebral infarction strokes.
- Access to rehab services.
While some health variables such as our genes are out of our control, some of the most significant ones are within our control.
With stroke survivors, for example, we know that exercise after stroke can be very effective; as can improving other lifestyle factors such as nutrition, sleep, stress and mindset.
Will I be able to run again?
The answer is, nobody knows. Your rehabilitation potential is influenced by some things you can’t control, such as your age and the severity of your stroke. It is also often said that our genes are like a loaded gun, but it’s our lifestyle that pulls the trigger.
However, as a stroke survivor, you will minimise the risk of another stroke and maximise the chances of reaching your rehabilitation potential by focusing on exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress, and mindset, which will maximise your chances of improving your mobility and the overall quality of your life.
Health by Science is here to help you do just that.
It’s been years since I had my stroke, can I still improve?
Current research suggests that most recovery is seen in the first weeks after stroke, with the recovery slope reaching a plateau between three and six months.
However, this trend correlates strongly with how much Physiotherapy and support the stroke survivor receives.
We know that very few stroke survivors use ‘Exercise After Stroke’ services, despite 29% of stroke survivors wanting more Physiotherapy once discharged home.
Furthermore, many stroke survivors undergo spontaneous recovery long after their stroke, which can be further facilitated with rehabilitative services such as ours.
What is the inclusion criteria?
If you do any exercise consistently, you can improve your mobility in day-to-day life. However, if you stop you will lose it.
Our approach to stroke rehabilitation is dynamic, innovative and linked directly to the very latest neurorehabilitation evidence-base.
Unfortunately, we can’t help everyone and so limit our classes to stroke survivors who can:
- Walk 10m with a walking stick
- Have the mental capacity to attend a gym independently
- If you don’t meet these criteria then you can still access our 1-2-1 Physiotherapy services.
