ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' opinions on the article "Effects of Forced Use on Arm Function in the Subacute Phase After Stroke: A Randomized, Clinical Pilot Study," by Ann M. Hammer and Bigitta Lindmark. An alternative theoretical perspective to the article is presented which uses bilateral coordination theory. The authors advocate approaches to stroke recovery which include intensive motor problem solving and cortical stimulation during rehabilitation.
