Inactivity of right limbs

My husband had a stroke in June 2014, post which he had right side paralysis. With the help of physiotherapy he can now walk comfortably with a stick. Unfortunately though there is still no activity in the right hand. Another doctor had suggested Botox but we're not too informed. Can you suggest a treatment course?

Hello,Doctors usually suggest physiotherapy to regain strength of weak side even though complete recovery is not possible . Botox is short form of botulism toxin treatment. You can surf in Internet ,it helps in regaining lost texture of skin.its also used in children with hemiplegia ,but its use is doubtful in adults . Take second opinion on this
