Almost 800,000 persons have strokes each year in the United States. Given the scope of this diagnosis, efforts are always ongoing to determine the most effective treatments for persons immediately after stroke. In this course, we will discuss what the literature reveals about the most effective medical management after acute stroke. We will also examine the studies on early mobilization after stroke to determine when it is safe and most effective to begin therapy. In addition, we will discuss pusher syndrome (or contraversive pushing), a problem that immediately impacts mobilization efforts after stroke.
