4 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

As with most things, the length of the therapy depends on the type, extent and severity of the initial injury.

In brief: It varies

It depends on how severe the stroke is and what is affected.
Someone with more motor involvement or has a communication problem such as a aphasia would need more therapy then someone with mild weakness would.
