Answer

Frankly, there are very few indications for no therapy and evidence does suggest that earlier mobilization translates to better long-term patient outcome.

Ideally, rehabilitation should begin immediately after a patient is admitted for stroke, barring additional medical issues aside from the stroke itself. [3]
