Stroke either a clot obstructing the flow of blood to the brain or by a blood vessel rupturing and preventing blood flow to the brain can lead to temporary or permanent loss of body functions. Stroke leaves a person with many physical challenges which ranges widely from emotional changes, cognitive deficits, communication problems and loss of voluntary control leading to balance impairments. Although physical abilities may prevent stroke survivors from doing some form of exercises, it’s important to find ways to stay physically active as possible to reduce the risk of having another stoke. Many forms of exercises are proven beneficial and now the trend of exercises is moving towards water than land, as the water based therapy helps to regain strength and balance putting less stress on the joints. Anyhow an individual assessment is needed to determine whether or not they are candidate to go into pool. Physiotherapists play an important role in addressing the issues that challenges the life of our patients after stroke. It is equally important for us to focus on the emotional and behavioral aspects along with the challenges of voluntary and cognitive deficits. For the benefit of our readers we are constantly striving to bring forward the research work done by our authors and researchers in various fields. On behalf of editorial and reviewer board I personally thank all our authors and readers for their contribution and support towards the improvement of our journal, we request your suggestions and advice for the benefit of our future researchers. I take this honor of announcing the release of International Journal of Physiotherapy second issue. Srikanth Babu Venga Executive Editor in Chief International Journal of Physiotherapy
