Deficits in balance and walking in Upper Motor Neuron Syndromes
An upper motor neuron syndrome can result in paresis, hypertonia and sensory loss. This presentation will describe the causes of balance dysfunction following a supratentorial stroke and discuss how selective sensory stimulation can enhance recovery.
