March 2018: de Jong et al (2018) Content of conventional therapy for the severely affected arm during subacute rehabilitation after stroke: An analysis of physiotherapy and occupational therapy practice. Physiotherapy Research International, 23, e1683. https://doi.org/10.1002/pri.1683
I’m back on one of my very favourite topics, upper limb recovery after stroke, but I promise I won’t stay on it for the rest of the year! I’m also reviewing an study authored by one of my very favourite research teams, Frederike van Wijck and her colleagues in the Netherlands, and I certainly won’t promise not to review another of their articles this year – that’s for sure!
These researchers investigated what treatment physiotherapists and occupational therapists prescribe and apply to patients with a severely, stroke-affected upper limb.
