Motor dysfunction, the most common clinical accompaniment of stroke, is associated with functional disability, and is a major concern of patients and family. Although current strategies to treat motor deficits are largely educational and adaptive in nature, better understanding of the underlying physiologic and neurochemical processes that accompany motor recovery will result in improved treatments in the near future. The natural history of recovery of motor deficits following stroke, current treatment strategies, and current concepts likely to lead to new strategies are discussed.
