795,000 people in USA have a new or recurrent stroke each year, leaving them with spatiotemporal gait abnormalities. Following D/C from in-patient rehab, many patients continue to experience activity limitations & participation restrictions secondary to limited walking ability. The use of BWSTT & overground GT has been shown to improve bilateral coordination and gait symmetry for patients with chronic stroke. Evidence for BWSTT rather than overground GT is mixed and does not include representation for the young stroke population. The purpose of this case report was to describe the outcomes of gait speed, efficiency of gait, and fall risk in a young individual following a chronic stroke managed with intense BWSTT and overground GT.
