    9 Reasons You Should Return to Work After a Stroke
    If you've suffered a mild to moderate stroke, returning to work can be good for your recovery, new research suggests. Adult stroke patients who are employed before and after suffering a first stroke are more likely than unemployed adults to have healthier minds two years after the stroke. Those are the findings of preliminary research presented in January 2018 at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles. Researchers conducted an analysis of a previous study of 252 working-age adult stroke survivors. Returning to work after suffering a first-ever stroke was associated with lower cognitive decline risk, they found. "Resuming life's activities is essential in stroke recovery, and going back to work for some individuals is vital," says Dr. Carolyn Brockington, director of the Stroke Center at Mount Sinai St. Luke's and Mount Sinai West hospitals in New York City, who wasn't involved with the research. "Recovery after stroke hinges on the brain being stimulated in order to help create the new neuronal pathways needed to improve the neurological function."
