Signs of Early Movement on the Weak Side
by: Anonymous

If you begin to see signs of early movement on the weak side, try AAROM exercises. These can be done with an arm skate or by having the therapist and patient work together to range the arm. Also, some patient may benefit from having a full length mirror placed in front of them while performing exercises and ADLS, as most stroke patients have visual/perceptual issues, motor planning deficits, and cognitive impairments. A visual aide is sometimes helpful for direct feedback and minimizing distraction.
