Typical rehabilitation post-stroke is initiated as soon as the patient is medically stable. The most dramatic neurological recovery occurs within the first three to six months following medical stabilization. It has been suggested in the literature that early and frequent out of bed activity within the first 24 hours following stroke onset will enhance motor recovery. The patient in this case report was sedentary for three months following the onset of stroke and was non-ambulatory at the time of admission to sub-acute physical therapy. The purpose of this case report is to describe the rehabilitative course, motor recovery, and functional gains for a patient who received delayed rehabilitation following a hemorrhagic stroke.
