Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

Analysis on the Effect of Modified Taijiquan(Tai Chi) on Stroke Patients in Rehabilitation of Movement Function

A problem here is that Bobath is not clinically proven as useful for stroke rehab, so comparisons here are not really valid.

Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effect of modified Taijiquan on rehabilitation of movement function in stroke patients. Methods: A total of 34 patients from Neurology and Rehabilitation Clinic or Hospitalized Patients from March 2016 to January 2017 were randomly divided into observation group and control group. The control group was treated with modern rehabilitation techniques, mainly using Bobath rehabilitation technique, which played a role in enhancing muscle strength and activating passive joints. The observation groups of 17 patients in the control group were given the
modified Taijiquan rehabilitation exercise. Improved international standard routines Taijiquan include: starting, reeling brachial, hug kneeling, flock, wild horse mane, and cloud hand and so on. The safety of rehabilitation techniques was evaluated by recording the body temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure and other indicators. The therapeutic effect was evaluated by FMA scale and Berg balance scale. Results: After treatment with different rehabilitation techniques, the two groups of patients had different degrees of improvement. The FAM upper limb, lower
limb, total score and Berg score of the observation group were significantly higher than those of the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P <0.05 ). Conclusion: The improved tai chi rehabilitation technique can significantly improve the limb function and balance ability of stroke patients, improve the quality of life and enrich the rehabilitation therapy of stroke hemiplegia patients
