↵* p Value is from an analysis of covariance model with treatment as a factor and baseline CIMT as a covariate.

↵† LS means and p value are from a linear mixed model (Laird–Ware model) which includes treatment as a factor, time as a covariate and an interaction between treatment and time, with randomly varying intercepts and slopes.
