AVC HEMIPLEGIA PDF

Loss of spatial recognition and a decrease in movement precision Muscle fatigue Lack of coordination Treating Hemiplegia and Hemiparesis Although hemiplegia and hemiparesis are serious handicaps, physical and occupational therapy and rehabilitation can help improve movement in those areas. Here are some of the techniques that aid in recovery. Range-of-Motion Exercises Range-of-motion exercises can help to prevent muscle stiffness and contractures by moving the weakened or paralyzed limb. Depending on whether the limb can voluntarily move or has to be moved by someone else, range-of-motion exercises can be passive where someone else moves the limb for you , active-assistive where you perform as much of the movement as possible with the help of someone else to complete the movement , or active where you complete the movement. Flexibility Training After a stroke, your therapist will work with you to design a stretching program that will best suit your needs. Flexibility training improves blood circulation and can help you regain the balance and coordination that can be lost after a stroke.

Range-of-Motion Exercises Range-of-motion exercises can help to prevent muscle stiffness and contractures by moving the weakened or paralyzed limb. Depending on whether the limb can voluntarily move or has to be moved by someone else, range-of-motion exercises can be passive where someone else moves the limb for you , active-assistive where you perform as much of the movement as possible with the help of someone else to complete the movement , or active where you complete the movement.

Flexibility Training After a stroke, your therapist will work with you to design a stretching program that will best suit your needs. Flexibility training improves blood circulation and can help you regain the balance and coordination that can be lost after a stroke.

When paired with strength training, flexibility training can lead to improved posture and ability. Flexibility training is important if you have limited mobility on your non-dominant side.

Often, the muscles on your dominant side of your body will be more flexible, so working to keep your dominant side as flexible as possible can help to increase mobility on your non-dominant side. Electrical Stimulation Electrical stimulation has been used to strengthen muscles in the arm and improve range of motion in patients with hemiparesis.

During electrical stimulation, small electrical pads are placed on the weakened muscles of the arm. A small electrical charge will trigger a shock to the muscles to make them contract while you work to move your arm. Patients attend this therapy three times a week, in half-hour sessions, over a week period. Research has shown that mCIT can be useful in increasing the movement in an arm affected by hemiplegia, but only in patients who are able to move their wrists or fingers voluntarily.

Motor Imagery MI During motor-imagery exercises, you will be asked to imagine yourself using a certain part of your body. As you imagine these body parts moving, certain areas of your brain and muscles may be active as if you were actually doing the activity. This mental practice has been shown to improve arm movement in patients with hemiparesis, and research suggests that motor-imagery exercises may be useful in helping patients walk.

Assistive Devices Assistive devices, such as braces, canes, walkers, and wheelchairs, can increase strength and movement in patients with weakened or paralyzed limbs. Rehabilitation treatment and assistive devices can help increase mobility and work towards recovery. Additionally, there are a variety of home modifications—such as installing ramps and raised toilet seats—that can improve the safety of those with one-sided weakness or paralysis.

Zologami Muscle tone Modified Ashworth Scale 0 — 4. Principles of experience-dependent neural plasticity: The movements of the unaffected limb change the excitability of the ipsilateral motor cortex, and benefit the function of the affected limb. 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.

Fisioterapia A causa mais comum a microembolia proveniente de uma placa carotidea. Outras sequelas podem ser: problema de percepcao, cognicao, sensoriais e de comunicacao, que estes precisam ser considerados na conduta fisioterapeutica. Evolucao para o tonus normal o estagio de recuperacao , os movimentos iniciam-se nos membros, primeiro mais distalmente, permanecendo na generalidade uma leve incapacidade. Ha uma recuperacao inicial dos movimentos proximais dos membros. Esses problemas resultam em dificuldades para a execucao dos movimentos funcionais, prejudicando a qualidade de vida individual, principalmente a indepen-dencia relativa a realizacao das AVDs e ao desempenho ocupacional. Dor no ombro esquerdo e no joelho esquerdo.
