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.

Effects of a sitting boxing program on upper limb function, balance, gait, and quality of life in stroke patients

But are the results just because you are getting more attention and you want to please your therapists?
A prime example of

The Hawthorne effect?

Abstract: Study examined the effects of a sitting boxing program on the changes in upper-limb function, balance, gait, and quality of life (QOL) in chronic stroke patients. Twenty-six participants were randomly allocated to a boxing group or control group. The boxing group underwent a sitting boxing program (3 times/week) as well as conventional physical therapy (3 times/week) for 6 weeks. The control group received only conventional physical therapy (3 times/week) for 6 weeks. Upper-limb function, balance, gait, and QOL were recorded before and after the experiment. Results showed that the Manual Functional Test, non-affected hand grip, Berg Balance Scale), velocity moment with eye opened, 10-Meter Walk Test, and Stroke-Specific Quality of Life questionnaire were significantly improved in the boxing group. These measures showed significantly greater improvements in the boxing group compared to the control group after 6 weeks. The sitting boxing program group had positive effects on upper-extremity function, balance, gait, and QOL in stroke patients.
