Publication type: journal article

In a nutshell: The Daily Telegraph drew an inadequate summary from a headline in the journal Stroke. This article attempts to redress the balance, by pointing out that there is no evidence to state that yoga will improve balance and function, but there is evidence to suggest that it might. It also points out that there is no evidence to say that yoga is more beneficial to people who have had a stroke than normal care.
