It's the seventh episode of The Better Ageing Podcast, and in this episode we're discussing the daunting, yet important topic of Stroke, and the particularly common and sometimes unknown condition of Frozen Shoulder, or Adhesive Capsulitis.
Our experts Jason Lee (physiotherapist) and Dr Jane Fyfield (geriatrician) provide insight into what's happening during stroke, ways to minimise your risk, what to do if someone has a stroke, and what rehabilitation looks like following stroke, before providing very practical insight into avoiding and managing frozen shoulder.
