About the Author
Steve lost the ability to walk following a severe stroke as a result of a brainstem Cavernoma in May 2017.
The ensuing surgery then removed the ability to even crawl. Having definitive views on how movement rehabilitation should be achieved, Steve signed himself out of hospital seven days later, still unable to walk and managed his own recovery.
Despite a prognosis of a two to three year recovery, Steve hit all of those targets inside 10 weeks. Having presented seminars on Movement Recovery Following Brain Injury in both the US & UK Steve continues help people in achieving their movement rehab goals.
