Recovery depends upon the cause.. For neurological reasons the best recovery is often seen in first eighteen months..but in our clinical experience we have seen partial nerve injuries and stroke patients recovering even later.. If the patient has lesser chances of recovery then the primary activity - locomotion can be achieved by using appropriate orthotic supports along with walking aids.. Some environmental modifications can help in activities of daily living and independency.. Another goal is to eliminate the risk of fall related injuries.. Consult with an experienced physiotherapist...
