The recovery of the ROM and upper limb function is a major concern during the patient’s rehabilitation after stroke. Am J Phys Med Rehabil. Functional Strength Training; AS: Table 3 Between-group differences at post-test and follow-up after randomization for patients with chronic hemiparesis after stroke. Strengthening interventions increase strength and improve activity after stroke: Muscle strength may be one of the main determinants for fsiioterapia improvement of motor control in patients with chronic stroke since no difference was observed between groups.

Groups were similar at baseline.

hemiplegiq Exercise induces angiogenesis but does not alter movement representations within rat motor cortex. Levin MF, Dimov M. Structural and functional changes in spastic skeletal muscle.


This method inputs the outcome measures as follow-up determination. Functional reorganization of the rat motor cortex following motor skill learning. Therefore, strengthening interventions can increase muscle strength, promote functional improvement, and potentially change quality of life without negative side effects such as the increase in hypertonia and pain 4 Effects of skilled and unskilled training on functional recovery and brain plasticity after focal ischemia in adult rats.

The analyses of the performed tasks quantified the abilities and the difficulties according to five dimensions related to UE sensory motor skills: The allocation schedule was generated and concealed in sequentially numbered, sealed, opaque envelopes.

Participants assigned to the FS group performed reaching-to-grasp movements against resistance. In the early stages after a stroke, cerebral edema is verified, fisioerapia with the consequent impairment of the cortico-spinal pathway, which is responsible for the transmission of motor commands.

The use of visual feedback, in particular mirror visual feedback, in restoring brain function. For this reason, our findings cannot be generalized to the broader community based on this study alone. The treatments classically recommended for reducing spasticity, such as strengthening of the antagonist muscle, cryotherapy and botulinum toxin application, act directly on the muscle spindle, decreasing excitability 2728 In relation to the ADL, as measured by the Barthel index, patients showed improvement in the individual score, but the improvement was not enough to provide change in the functional category, given that the Barthel index results are interpreted in categories ranging from total dependence to independence of the patient.

The ineffectiveness of the technique on spasticity can be attributed to the fact that mirror therapy does not act directly on the muscle spindles, which is fundamental for its reduction by slowing the nervous signaling transmission.

After completion of the intervention, all patients performed the outcome measures. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether a five-week home-based program of functional strengthening was more effective than analytical strengthening for improving UE activity levels in subjects with chronic hemiparesis. Spatial zones for muscle coactivation and the control of postural stability.


Adequate reliability has been reported for adults with hemiparesis Muscular strength deficits are not always the main outcome following neurological damage. Best conventional therapy versus modular impairment-oriented training for arm paresis after stroke: Written informed consent was obtained from all participants.

As for spasticity, no statistically significant differences before and after the intervention proposal were identified. Functional strength training was able to induce greater improvements in the combined unilateral and bilateral activity of the paretic UE, as evaluated by means of the TEMPA scale immediately after the treatment and hfmiplegia the month follow-up.

Mirror therapy for upper limb rehabilitation in chronic patients after stroke

Results As shown in Figure 128 patients eligible to participate in the study were selected. Results are presented as median min-max or mean and standard deviation SD. Combined functional task practice and dynamic high intensity resistance training promotes recovery of upper-extremity motor function in post-stroke hemiparesis: Our results are extended specifically to patients with chronic stroke and moderate paresis.

Published online Sep In the present study, we reported positive results for muscle strength training during UE rehabilitation in patients with chronic stroke.
