When working with students who have had a stroke special consideration should be taken with twists and movement concerning the neck. Plaque can accumulate in the internal carotid arteries or vertebral arteries. These are the two main pairs of artieries that supply blood to the brain.
Most commonly, a stroke may result from a blockage in the arteries or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke). Sometimes a stroke can result when plaque breaks off and travels to the brain. A word of caution: Modify twists - don't allow the twist to go all the way to the edge of the side-to-side movement.
