Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital Aquatic Therapy

It's National Stroke Month and Lovelace Hospital is trying to get the word out about this serious health condition.

 Strokes are actually the 4th leading cause of death in the country.

On Tuesday, there was a community event held at Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital.

People there were able to get into the therapy pool, to see how aquatic therapy can help with stroke recovery.

Suzette Miera has survived four strokes, and now swears by water therapy.

"When you're relaxed in the water...but not too relaxed, not too hot, your brain will function smoother," she said. "It's so important. I didn't know any of this."

Symptoms of stroke include sudden numbness or weakness in your face or body - and also, trouble speaking or understanding.

About 4 million people suffer from the after-affects of stroke.
