Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 13604 posts. Searching is done in the search box in upper left corner. I blog on anything to do with stroke.DO NOT DO ANYTHING SUGGESTED HERE AS I AM NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED, YOUR DOCTOR IS, LISTEN TO THEM. BUT I BET THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET YOU 100% RECOVERED. I DON'T EITHER, BUT HAVE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTOR TO ANSWER.
Deans' stroke musings
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areeffective 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.

The efficacy of treadmill training on balance dysfunction in individuals with chronic stroke: a systematic review
Just why the fuck was a review needed? Everyone else in stroke is so fucking incompetent that a stroke protocol on treadmill training is too difficult to do? Try recovering from a stroke completely on your own, your therapists and doctors know jackshit about getting you 100% recovered.
What type of treadmill? Underwater? Body weight supported? Air-pressure? Split belt? Rotating? Anti gravity? This is completely and totally useless. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/10749357.2017.1345445?journalCode=ytsr20
Physical activity and exercise interventions are useful in facilitating
the functional recovery of those with chronic stroke and, routinely,
are gait-specific. While treadmill training has proven useful in gait
performance recovery post-stroke, its efficacy on balance dysfunction
has not been systematically reviewed. Objectives:
The purpose of this systematic review was to determine the effect of
treadmill training (TT) interventions on balance dysfunction in
individuals with chronic stroke. Methods:
A systematic literature search of PubMed, EMBASE, and CINAHL was
performed. Eligible randomized controlled trials were published between
2007 and 2016. Selected trials investigated TT interventions in persons
with chronic stroke and implemented at least one objective balance
measure. Methodological quality was assessed using PEDro criteria. Results:
Eight studies met eligibility criteria and were included in the
qualitative analysis. Studies differed in TT implementation and use of
adjunctive treatments; however, all trials demonstrated improvements in
balance measures that were as effective, if not more so, than
conventional physical therapy treatments, including targeted balance
training. Conclusions: This review recognized moderate evidence in favor of TT interventions in balance and stroke rehabilitation programs. With TT, intensity may be a more critical factor than specificity
and may offer additional carryover to recovery parameters of postural
control and balance, beyond gait performance. It is recommended that
clinicians utilizing TT incorporate objective measures of balance to
assess the potential for skill transference and improvements in balance.
Higher quality studies and additional research are needed to denote
critical parameters by which improvements in balance may be optimized.
