A patient with right anterior pons and superior cerebellar stroke was seen for
physical therapy treatment for 16 sessions from 6/11/14 to 6/23/14 at an inpatient
physical therapy clinic. Treatment was provided by a student physical therapist under the
supervision of a licensed physical therapist.
The patient was evaluated at the initial encounter with Timed Up and Go, 10 Meter
Walk Test, Dynamic Gait Index, Berg Balance Scale, and Functional Independence
Measure, and a plan of care was established. Main goals for the patient were to improve
strength, range of motion, motor control and sequencing during functional activities, gait
speed, static and dynamic standing balance, and functional independence. Main
interventions used were over-ground gait training, restorative training, task-specific
training, and functional training.
The patient improved strength, motor control and sequencing, gait speed, balance, and
functional independence. The patient was discharged to home with a home exercise
program and with follow up with outpatient physical therapy.
