Hi welcome to HCM,
difficult to tell you, but there is no immediate solution for stroke i.e paralysis.He is suffering from hemiparesis. Physiotheraphy will help to gain power in upper and lower limb, but it will be a gradual procedure and depends on extent of damage of bran. You have to take antithrombolytic medicine to avoid further stroke.
Thanking you.
