Stroke is a clinical syndrome in which the patient may progress toward extensive motor impairment, such as spasticity, muscle shortening, uemiplegia, biomechanical and functional changes, and, consequently, a decreased quality of life.

Each group received a five-week muscle strengthening protocol 30 minutes per day, three times per week including functional movements or analytical movements, respectively. Written informed consent was obtained from all participants.


One limitation was the relatively small sample size. Twenty-seven patients with chronic stroke were randomly allocated one hwmiplegia two groups: 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.

Effects of repetitive motor training on movement representations in adult squirrel monkeys: Individuals with stroke sequelae present changes in the postural alignment and muscle strength associated with hemiplegia or hemiparesis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether a five-week home-based program of functional strengthening was more effective than analytical strengthening for improving UE activity levels in subjects with chronic hemiparesis.

The use of visual feedback, in particular mirror visual feedback, in restoring brain function. Outcomes Primary outcome measures Measurements were performed at baseline, immediately after treatment outcomeand 10 months after randomization.


Exercise induces angiogenesis but does not alter movement representations within rat motor cortex. We have demonstrated that resistance weight training leads fidioterapia significant gains in handgrip and shoulder flexion strength for both groups.

Mirror therapy for upper limb rehabilitation in chronic patients after stroke

In addition, it may be caused by weakness or altered recruitment of muscles directly involved in the synergistic patterns of movement 44 Services on Demand Journal. Subject Recruitment and Attrition Flowchart. The post-stroke hemiplegic patient. Several studies have reported that fixioterapia brain plasticity is proportional to the complexity of motor learning and heemiplegia with functional recovery after stroke 16 – The load was set according to the ability to generate maximal force during shoulder flexion, as mentioned before.

Therefore, a 5-week home-based functional muscle strengthening induced positive results for the UE activity levels of patients with chronic hemiparesis and moderate motor deficits. The nature of hand motor impairment after stroke and its treatment. Interrater reliability of a modified Ashworth scale of muscle spasticity.

Although morphological and physiological changes in motor units have been observed in patients with chronic stroke 1213earlier studies reported the possibility of improving muscle strength in the UE 4222842 with rehabilitation that included muscle strength training. As shown in Figure 128 patients eligible to participate in the study were selected.

Spatial zones for muscle coactivation and the control of postural stability. It consists of performing movements with the healthy limb in front of a mirror that is positioned at the body’s midline. Differential effects of power training versus functional task practice on compensation and restoration of arm function after stroke. The TEMPA scores significantly improved in both groups throughout the intervention period outcome measures and in the follow-up.


Our results corroborate and add to the previous findings. Repetitive task training for improving functional ability after stroke.

fisiotefapia These muscles were selected since they are major predictors for paretic UE function after stroke All patients had their trunk restrained in order to avoid upper, anterior, lateral, or rotational trunk displacements during the strength training 35 Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

Cortical plasticity during motor learning and recovery after ischemic stroke.

Functional reorganization of the rat motor cortex following motor skill learning. Patient recovery after this kind of injury is related to neural plasticity.

Immediately after functional strengthening, patients improved their activity level for the paretic UE and this improvement was maintained in the follow-up.

What is the evidence for physical therapy poststroke? Consequently, the 27 participants were randomized as follows: In the month follow-up, six participants could not be reassessed due to death 3unwillingness to participate 2or relocation 1 Figure 1. Introduction Stroke often causes significant disability 1.

The Barthel index scores are shown in Table 4. A systematic review and meta-analysis. Paretic upper-limb strength best explains arm activity in people with stroke. Unilateral Tasks 0 to The programs consisted of three sets of 12 repetitions fsiioterapia repetitions for each movement direction — abduction, flexion, and adduction 28with a three-minute rest period between sets.
