I was inspired to do this blog after working with a 40 year old male whom had suffered a
stroke caused by a blockage in his left middle cerebral artery. As a result of him sustaining an injury the left side of his brain, he was left with abnormal tone and muscle weakness in his right upper and lower extremity. The goal of rehabilitation for this patient in physical and occupational therapy was to maximize and/or regain functional movement as a result of neuroplasticity.
