    One of our members from South Africa submitted the following:

    __________________________________________________

    I have had a brain stem stroke 2 1/2 years ago and I have bad balance. I do my exercises and have gained small amounts. Does balance suddenly come back?

      Hello,  I’m a Neurophysiotherapist.
      To answer your question, I will say NO. Recovery post stroke does not happen suddenly. 
      Recovery is progressive and will require continuous exercises aimed at addressing your balance problems. 
      Discuss with your physical or exercise therapist to design balance exercises tailored to address your balance challenges. 
      Best wishes
