 We used constraint-induced movement therapy after neuro-modulation (NM) to treat a chronic stroke patient with right hemiparesis and non-fluent aphasia. We found that the Fugl-Meyer Assessment for arm showed meaningful clinical improvement. Additionally, the faculty of language including “naming” of the Standard language test of aphasia showed meaningful improvement. The increasing amount of actual affected arm use in “occupation-as-means” and “occupation-as-end” comprised in the constraint-induced movement therapy after NM might improve the faculty of speech in chronic stroke patients. This result showed occupational therapy might be able to complement speech therapy.
