Answer

Answer

With any approach to stroke rehabilitation, treatment considerations are primarily focused on the impairment level. Impairments vary in complexity and severity in relation to the location and extent of the infarct. The patient’s premorbid functional level can significantly influence mobility and independence during recovery.
