Limiting factor in stroke recovery

Can anyone help me understand a little more about why a stroke patient
is said to make most progress in the first three months?

If a stroke patient has been ill from other causes (e.g.  pneumonia)
and was unable to undertake much physical therapy during the first
three months, why exactly would that that make progress in recovering
function less likely in the following months?
