Use the labels in the right column to find what you want. Or you can go thru them one by one, there are only 16456 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.
Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all thetrillions and trillions of neuronsthateach daybecause there areNOeffective 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.

Interventions involving repetitive practice improve strength after stroke: a systematic review
Open access funded by Australian Physiotherapy Association
interventions involving repetitive practice improve strength after
stroke? Are any improvements in strength accompanied by improvements in
Systematic review of randomised trials with meta-analysis.
Adults who have had a stroke.
Any intervention involving repetitive practice compared with no intervention or a sham intervention.
primary outcome was voluntary strength in muscles trained as part of
the intervention. The secondary outcomes were measures of lower limb and
upper limb activity.
studies were included. The overall SMD of repetitive practice on
strength was examined by pooling post-intervention scores from 46
studies involving 1928 participants. The SMD of repetitive practice on
strength when the upper and lower limb studies were combined was 0.25
(95% CI 0.16 to 0.34, I2 = 44%) in favour of repetitive
practice. Twenty-four studies with a total of 912 participants
investigated the effects of repetitive practice on upper limb activity
after stroke. The SMD was 0.15 (95% CI 0.02 to 0.29, I2 = 50%)
in favour of repetitive practice on upper limb activity. Twenty studies
with a total of 952 participants investigated the effects of repetitive
practice on lower limb activity after stroke. The SMD was 0.25 (95% CI
0.12 to 0.38, I2 = 36%) in favour of repetitive practice on lower limb activity.
involving repetitive practice improve strength after stroke, and these
improvements are accompanied by improvements in activity.
