Abstract

Patients with multiple strokes are often excluded from studies due to poor outcomes. This case report described change in mobility and balance in a 54-year-old male with four strokes following intensive physical therapy (PT) based on the Taskoriented Approach. Outcome assessment demonstrated clinically meaningful change in balance and mobility, and no adverse events. Intensive task-oriented PT is safe and feasible, and may contribute toward positive outcomes in severe disability related to multiple strokes.
