Alteration in gait is one of the most noted impairments following stroke. Improving walking ability is one of the most common goals amongst patients with stroke undergoing rehabilitation. Current literature describes visual and proprioceptive feedback and task-oriented training as effective in improving gait speed, mechanics, strength, and balance following stroke. Based on the research, postural control training may improve walking ability following stroke. The purpose of this case report is to outline physical therapy rehabilitation that utilized postural control training, task-oriented training, and visual feedback to improve walking ability and functional capacity in a patient following a lacunar stroke affecting the internal capsule, basal ganglia, and cerebellum.
