Intensive rehabilitation techniques improves stroke outcome

Writing in US pharmacist, Dr. Osemene, Associate Professor of Pharmacy and Chair Texas Southern University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Houston, Texas USA  states that Rehabilitation remains the cornerstone to improve stroke sequelae outcomes. Stroke remains a leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and disability.
Neuromuscular Dysfunction  post stroke may include apraxia, pain syndromes, limb spasticity, and incontinence. Musculoskeletal pain in stroke patients is due to a dysfunction in functional movement ability and poor motor control, this is due both to improper limb and gait biomechanics and neurological impairments. The pain may be in the shoulders, hips, muscles, and other parts of the body.
Impacting the outcomes of stroke requires intensive rehabilitation techniques tailored to the patient’s needs and response.
