Suffering a stroke is a sudden and unexpected event that has the potential to change the course of our health and our physical function across our lifetime. While strokes are often thought to be associated with older adults, 24% of all new stroke sufferers in Australia in 2020 were aged under 55 years old.
From a young age, we all learn how pain occurs naturally in response to injury. Most of the time, it makes sense that something would hurt, such as when we roll out onto our ankles or trip down stairs. At other times pain can be more mysterious.
