Physiotherapy Treatments for Stroke
In order for people who have had a serious stroke to resume their regular daily activities and take care of themselves as independently as is practical, neurologic rehabilitation focuses on reducing impairments and disabilities. The adult central nervous system can adapt or reorganize itself to restore impaired cognitive and motor abilities.
The treatment of stroke patients varies depending on how they present and what their main concerns are. The patient’s needs, not the facility, determine the kind and level of care.
To achieve better results, physical therapy should be started as soon as possible.
Without affecting tone or pain, strength training can increase upper limb strength. recommending the right orthotics to prevent foot drop, clenched fists, problems with active daily living, and hygiene maintenance. Along with traditional therapy, mirror therapy has positive effects on motor function and control.
Overground gait training is a significant part of traditional physical therapies to enhance dynamic balance and assure secure home mobility. Prior to stepping in the regulated environment of the parallel bars, patients practice trunk and head control, sit-to-stand balance, and stepping. Over-ground training emphasizes using an orthotic or assistive device as necessary, clearing the paralysed foot to initiate leg swing, knee stability in standing, and stepping with a more rhythmic, safe gait pattern.
Yoga for Stroke Patients
Yoga is a beneficial addition to stroke rehabilitation therapy because it accelerates and extends recovery. Yoga enhances the effects of stroke therapy. Yoga practitioners may benefit from increased flexibility, better balance, maximum strength, pain control, and increased energy. Throughout these sessions, participants are instructed in poses that can be performed while sitting, lying on a bench, or using a wheelchair as support. Yoga has also been shown to increase independence with daily living activities, lower fall-related fear, and improve life quality. Yoga has been shown to result in longer steps, a more powerful and quicker gait, increased strength, and endurance, in addition to improving balance and flexibility. Yoga also emphasizes the significance of connecting breath to movement, which improves the rehabilitation of stroke overall.
