Problem/Condition: According to Page, Levine, Leonard, Szaflarski & Kissela (2008), up to 30-60% of stroke survivors experience hemiparesis. Hemiparesis is “weakness or partial paralysis” that occurs on one side of the body secondary to brain damage (Woodson, 2008, p. 1002). The phenomenon of “learned non-use” commonly occurs in people with hemiparesis following a CVA (Grotta, et. al, 2004). Using the affected extremity becomes increasingly challenging and therefore, individuals will opt to use… Expand
