Abstract

Although large-scale epidemiologic studies, as well as interventional trials have provided strong evidence of a consistent and robust association between physical activity and cardiovascular disease, the effect of exercise on the burden of stroke is not well understood and appreciated. This review has a purpose to summarize the literature on the effect of physical activity on stroke morbidity and mortality, and to provide current scientific evidences.
