Stroke happens when the blood supply to part of your brain is cut off due to a blood clot, or because a brain artery ruptures and leads to a hemorrhage. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, but most strokes can be prevented by addressing a small number of key risk factors. One million strokes a year are linked to physical inactivity, but by getting the recommended amount of exercise each week, you will reduce your risk of having a stroke.


  • How does exercise reduce stroke risk?
  • How much exercise do I need?
  • If I am unfit, isn’t there a risk that exericise could cause a stroke?
  • Should I exercise if I’ve already had a stroke?
