Preventing the development of contractures in the affected extremity. The neurological damage caused by CVA places the patient with hemiparesis at a high risk of contracture development, especially if no active movement is observed. The OTA’s primary objective as she begins treatment should be to provide techniques that will reduce the risk of contracture development.
