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 the Kinesio® Taping on the gait of stroke subjects: a systematic review with meta-analysis

I had Kinesio taping on my shoulder. No clue if it did any good at all. You can ask your doctor why a statistically significant gain doesn't result in any clinical use to patients.

Abstract: This study investigated the effects of the use of Kinesio Taping (KT) on the gait of post-stroke patients through a systematic review of the literature. KT has been used in the rehabilitation of post-stroke patients and several recent studies have investigated its effects on the gait of these patients, reporting promising results. For the review, searches were conducted in the databases Medline, CINAHL, SPORTDiscus, Web of Science, LILACS and PEDro, without restrictions of date or language of publication. The articles were screened independently by two evaluators and disagreements were resolved by a third party. Methodological quality was assessed according to the PEDro scale. When possible, outcome measures were analyzed using the program Comprehensive Meta-Analysis, version 3.0. The review included 15 studies of low to moderate methodological quality (mean 4.7). For gait speed, 7 studies of low to moderate methodological quality were included in the meta-analysis that, under the model of fixed effects, found that KT significantly increased the gait speed of post-stroke patients in 0.05 m/s (95%CI 0.002 to 0.100; I2=0%; p<0.05). However, for step length, functional mobility, and balance, no significant difference was found (p>0.05). This systematic literature review showed there is still no evidence of improvement in gait with the use of KT in the rehabilitation of post-stroke patients. Although gait speed, according to the meta-analysis, has shown a statistically significant gain, its value cannot be considered clinically relevant to patients.
