The rehab depends on the type of stroke and the debilities presented by the patient. Most of my patients are strokes, but they all present with different losses. In general, I am constantly working on sit balance -stand balance when able- LE strengthening, PNF, AAROM to assist the hemi side, stretching. For example, one of my patients presents with decreased L quad, has visual deficits to the left, poor proproception. I will pull a mirror in front of pt , work on stand balance and focus on TKE all at once.
There is so much you can do with strokes, but again, in depends on the patient.
