Introduction: the relevance of determining the effectiveness of early rehabilitation of patients after an ischemic stroke is high, as it solves a number of important medical and social problems of society.

The aim: to determine the possibilities and effectiveness of early rehabilitation of patients after an ischemic stroke according to the data of literary sources.

Materials and methods: the research was conducted based on the results of the analysis of the world results of scientific research and the existing mechanisms and documents of international societies for determining the possibilities and effectiveness of early rehabilitation of patients after an ischemic stroke. The search for scientific information was performed using domestic and foreign Internet resources of Google Scholar, PubMed, Medscape, Scopus and Web of Science databases, etc.

The results of the study: It was determined that the primary and quite effective measure in the treatment of patients after an ischemic stroke is the early start of rehabilitation measures, which improves the survival of brain cells due to an increase in cerebral blood flow, which reduces ischemic necrosis of neurons and revitalizes part of neurons and significantly reduces the post-stroke level disability of patients. It was established that a significant yet undetermined issue in early rehabilitation is the effectiveness of early mobilization and its intensity, and the effectiveness of the rehabilitation strategy is entirely based on the correct combination of the time from the onset of the stroke and the intensity of mobilization

Conclusions: the study determined that early rehabilitation intervention in ischemic stroke is significantly effective and economically feasible, and the effectiveness and feasibility of early intensive mobilization is currently a rather controversial issue.
