# 232 Stroke Recovery: A Strength-Based Approach - Options to Maximize Functional Outcomes©
Past research has purported interventions of constraint, intensity, and repetition as key factors to stroke recovery. Stroke recovery however, is multifactorial that encompasses cognitive, motor, sensory, environmental, psychosocial components and most importantly lesion location and the extent of the infarct area versus the penumbra. Furthermore, lesion location and damage dictates stroke impairment. The key to targeted interventions and subsequent potential for maximal outcomes is to choose the appropriate measurement tool to assess lesion specific stroke deficits. This course will address the neuroanatomical origin of strength and how it is impacted based on lesion site. Clinical case studies will address the upper extremity, trunk and lower extremity. Treatment interventions will be supported by evidence in practice. Therapy practitioners will be given the opportunity to demonstrate clinical decision-making skills by choosing outcome measures to assess strength after observing videos and present examples of goals established, treatment intervention, and documentation to justify reimbursement.
