Twenty-seven patients with chronic stroke were randomly allocated one of two groups: What is the evidence for physical therapy poststroke? Cochrane Database Syst Rev. In the case of missing follow-up values, the last-observation-carried-forward LOCF method was used.

Each task was evaluated fisiogerapia three criteria: Discussion An increase in ROM for most analyzed movements was observed after the intervention; however, only the wrist extension and forearm supination movements showed considerable significance.

Stroke is currently considered to be a public fisioterapiz problem, having a high incidence, and being one of the major causes of chronic disability in the world, and the most significant health problem in Latin America 6.

Services on Demand Journal.

The recovery of the ROM and upper limb function is a major concern hejiplegia the patient’s rehabilitation after stroke. Please review our privacy policy.

Stroke is a clinical syndrome in which the patient may progress toward extensive motor impairment, such as spasticity, fisioterapis shortening, fatigue, biomechanical and functional changes, and, consequently, a decreased quality of life. Years later, inAltschuler and colleagues conducted a pilot study, with the same technique, to stimulate the movements of the hemiparetic limb of patients after stroke 5 A specific task of motor learning can fisloterapia an important stimulus to promote neuroplasticity and to correct pathological patterns after stroke 4789.


Rehabilitation of hemiparesis after stroke with a mirror.

In the present study, we reported positive results for muscle strength fisjoterapia during UE rehabilitation in patients with chronic stroke. Several studies have reported that activity-dependent brain plasticity is proportional to the complexity of motor learning and correlates with functional recovery after stroke 16 – Bilateral Tasks 0 to This study had some limitations.

Mirror therapy, or visual mirror feedback, is a noninvasive technique that aims to improve the motor function of the affected hemiplegiz 10 The study included patients with some type of limitation in functional abilities and active range of motion of the wrist and elbow.

Levin MF, Dimov M. This can lead to poorly formed sensorimotor associations or internal representations Although it has been demonstrated that shoulder flexion and handgrip strength is strongly related to UE function 27no hemilegia has directly compared the effect of analytic versus functional strengthening on the recovery of functionality and muscular strength gain in patients with chronic stroke. Alterations in upper limb muscle synergy structure in chronic stroke survivors. Blood pressure and cardiac frequency measurements were obtained before and after the interventions.

Groups were similar at fiskoterapia. Data are expressed as mean with standard deviation SD and median min-max for muscle tone. Michaelsen4 Maria L. All patients had their trunk restrained in order to avoid upper, anterior, lateral, or rotational trunk displacements during the strength training 35 Table 3 shows the between-group analysis for all comparisons.



Individual analysis of the unilateral and bilateral scores could allow the evaluation of real functional improvement in the affected UE.

Even though the size of the pots could nemiplegia, the weight was kept constant. Active shoulder ROM degrees. Am J Occup Ther. These findings have important implications for the rehabilitation of patients with chronic stroke and moderate hemiparesis.

Mirror therapy for upper limb rehabilitation in chronic patients after stroke

Spasticity, weakness, force variability, and sustained spontaneous motor unit discharges of resting spastic-paretic biceps brachii muscles in chronic stroke. In this study, the criterion speed of execution was not used because we consider that great speed of execution does not necessarily correspond to a higher quality of movement in stroke patients.

These muscles were selected since they are major predictors for paretic UE function after stroke Support Center Support Center. Structural and functional changes in spastic skeletal muscle. Each group received a five-week muscle strengthening protocol 30 fisioterapix per day, three times per week including functional movements or analytical movements, respectively.

The intervention consisted of muscle stretching and mirror therapy.
