This research project is centered around comparing three types of stroke treatment to determine which treatment is most effective, or if there is a combination of treatments that best help people recover from a stroke. Currently, two main treatments are used for people that have suffered from a stroke and lost motor control: physical therapy and chemical drugs. However, more recently stem-cell therapy has become a new possibility for treatment. After comparing efficacy and quality of life scores, it can be determined whether or not there is an ideal treatment or combination of treatments for stroke therapy.
