Cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or stroke, is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States (US) with more than 140,000 deaths each year. It is the leading cause of long-term disability in the US, reducing functional mobility in more than half of all stroke survivors ages 65 or older. This condition costs the US approximately 34 billion dollars a year and it is estimated to increase to 108 billion per year by 2025. Strokes are caused by the interruption of the blood supply to the brain, which occurs when a blood vessel ruptures (hemorrhagic stroke) or is blocked by a clot (ischemic stroke). The purpose of this case report is to describe the multifactorial management of care for a patient affected by chronic stroke in the outpatient physical therapy setting.
