Answer

Perform range of motion and strengthening exercises, sitting balance, transfer training, and tilt table as tolerated (because of tendency to orthostatic hypotension). Tilt table should start at 15 degrees, progressing by 10 degrees every 15 minutes up to about 80 degrees with the necessary precautions.
