Rate of recovery

We have already seen that the nature of stroke is:

  • Complex
  • Individual
  • Difficult to predict in the acute stage

Therefore, prediction of recovery can never be absolute.

Recovery is fastest in the first 3 months … But improvements may still continue after a year.
(Werner & Kessler, 1996)
