Understanding approaches to optimize sensorimotor and cardiovascular recovery following stroke.
Kathryn May Sibley
Written in English
Gait is often compromised following stroke, resulting from impairments in sensorimotor control and cardiovascular de-conditioning. The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the role of aerobic exercise in sensorimotor control following stroke, and to identify specific training tasks that may optimize both sensorimotor and cardiovascular recovery. Muscle activation patterns and spatio-temporal characteristics of gait were compared between sub-acute stroke participants who received aerobic training on a semi-recumbent ergometer and patients who received traditional rehabilitation only. Aerobic capacity was improved, however hypothesized improvements in sensorimotor control were not observed. We then examined three novel pedaling tasks hypothesized to increase use of one limb in healthy participants to evaluate potential utility with stroke patients. Two tasks that mechanically increased pedaling load and provided electromyographic feedback were identified as candidates for further study. This work has important implications for the evolution of stroke rehabilitation and for improving quality of life following stroke.

Emma Gee, a stroke survivor, occupational therapist, inspirational speaker and author of Reinventing Emma. Simone Russell, an occupational therapist from the Stroke Foundation’s StrokeLine. The first recovery mechanism is resolution of harmful local factors, which generally accounts for early spontaneous improvement after stroke (usually within the first mo). These processes include resolution of local edema, resorption of local toxins, improvement of local circulation, and recovery of partially damaged ischemic neurons.

Chapter 19 - Lost in translation: rethinking approaches to stroke recovery Dale Corbett, Matthew Jeffers, Carine Nguemeni, Mariana Gomez-Smith, Jessica Livingston-Thomas Pages The stroke recovery process looks different for everyone because every stroke is different.
While the after math of stroke can be devastating for some, rehabilitation can help you regain your independence. Below, you’ll learn where the stroke recovery process may take you, along with tips to help you recover.
Step 1: Stroke Rehabilitation Starts Immediately The Stroke Recovery. Neurodevelopmental approaches to improve walking ability. Traditional approaches to stroke recovery have a focus on neurofacilitation or neurodevelopmental techniques (NDT) to inhibit excessive tone, stimulate muscle activity if hypotonia is present and to facilitate normal movement patterns through hands-on by: Talking and Communication After a Stroke communication problems improve naturally over weeks and months.
The brain can often adapt and pick up new skills to make up for some of what it lost. These findings indicate that the recovery of sensorimotor functions after stroke and brain remapping involve changes in the temporal and spatial spread of sensory information Cited by: Stroke is a leading cause of disability in adults and recovery is often difficult, with existing rehabilitation therapies largely ineffective.
In Broken Movement, John Krakauer and S. Thomas Carmichael, both experts in the field, provide an account of the neurobiology of motor recovery in the arm and hand after stroke. They cover topics that Cited by: The loss of urinary continence is fairly common immediately after a stroke and often results from a combination of sensory and motor deficits.
Stroke survivors may lose the ability to sense the need to urinate or the ability to control bladder muscles. Some may lack enough mobility to. In previous studies, it was shown that there is a need for efficient motor rehabilitation approaches.
For this purpose, we evaluated a music-supported training program designed to induce an auditory–sensorimotor co-representation of movements in 20 stroke patients (10 affected in the left and 10 in the right upper extremity).

Stop depression before it hinders recovery. Post-stroke depression is common, with as many as percent of stroke survivors depressed in the early or later phases of post-stroke. Post-stroke depression can significantly affect your loved one’s recovery and rehabilitation.
Consult a healthcare provider to develop a plan of action. Seek. This approach encourages development of flexor and extensor synergies during early recovery, with the intention that synergic activation of muscles will, with training, transit into voluntary activation of movements.
9 Brunnstrom (, ) and Sawner () also described the process of recovery following stroke-induced hemiplegia. Characterizing the timecourse and magnitude of sensorimotor recovery after stroke has been a fundamental challenge for the field of stroke recovery.
Historically, studies have suggested that most recovery may occur within the first few weeks post stroke, quickly plateaus, 1, 2 and can be dependent on stroke by: Predicting outcome and recovery after stroke with lesions extracted from MRI images. Predictions are likely to improve when other determinants of recovery are included in the system.

Stroke Recovery In 7 Stages: Spasticity As A Process. With the seven stages of recovery, Brunnstrom effectively changed the way stroke recovery is approached by occupational and physical therapists.
She theorized that spastic and primitive muscle movements were a natural part of the recovery process after a stroke. A wide range of treatment techniques and approaches from different philisophical backgrounds are utilised in Neurological Rehabilitation.
Research to support the different approaches varies hugely, with a wealth of research to support the use of some techniques while other approaches have limited evidence to support its use but rely on ancedotal evidence.

The American Stroke Association says that regular physical activity following a stroke can also help reduce the risk of falls and other complications like osteoporosis and heart disease. Exercise has also proven to improve cholesterol levels, manage diabetes, combat obesity and control blood pressure.
This 2nd edition remains the only comprehensive evidence-based text on the Occupational Therapy management of the stroke patient. The book is based on the most up-to-date research on stroke rehabilitation and presents its content in a holistic fashion, combining aspects of background medical information, samples of functionally based evaluations, and treatment techniques and interventions.
After stroke, sensory dysfunction in the lower limb has been related to reductions in static and dynamic balance as well as in gait speed and symmetry. Therefore, successful recovery of sensory function after stroke may allow for the appropriate integration of sensory inputs in order to maintain balance and adapt to changing environmental demands during gait.
