Stroke Statistics

Updated: Oct 14, 2022

Hi everyone! For today's blog post, I would like to share some statistics about strokes and stroke research.

Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes. Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability. Stroke reduces mobility in more than half of stroke survivors age 65 and over.

When combined with targeted exercises, aquatic therapy for stroke patients is an excellent way for patients to relearn physical skills without placing undue stress on their bodies.

I hope you guys learned something, and please consider donating at! Thank you!
