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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

A systematic review of mechanisms of gait speed change post-stroke. Part 2: Exercise capacity, muscle activation, kinetics, and kinematics

So still no clue as to what rehab creates functional gains. Once again everything in your recovery is up to you. You find the appropriate research and deduce what the protocol is. What the fuck is your doctor for?

Abstract: This systematic review explored potential mechanisms of change that may explain improvements in gait speed and quantify motor recovery following physical therapy interventions in the stroke population. PubMed, Ovid, and CINAHL databases were searched relevant rehabilitation trials with a statistically significant change in self-selected walking speed post-intervention that concurrently collected mechanistic variables. Twenty-five studies met the inclusion criteria and examined. Methodological quality was assessed using Cochrane Collaboration’s tool. Walking speed changes, mechanistic variables, and intervention data were extracted. The physical therapy interventions used within the included studies that were found to produce improvements in gait speed were: cardiorespiratory function, muscle activation, force production, and movement analysis. Interventions included: aerobic training, functional electrical stimulation, multidimensional rehabilitation, robotics, sensory stimulation training, strength/resistance training, task-specific locomotor rehabilitation, and visually-guided training. No systematic approach or set of outcome measures to mechanistically explain changes observed in walking speed were identified. Nor is there a theoretical basis to drive the complicated selection of outcome measures, as many of these outcomes are not independent of walking speed. Since rehabilitation literature has not yet identified a causal, mechanistic link for post-stroke functional gains, a systematic, multimodal approach to stroke rehabilitation will be necessary in doing so.
