Abstract

The aim of this study is to follow the influence of specialized kinesitherapeutic methodology (SKTM) on static and functional equilibrium reactions in patients with ischemic stroke in the chronic period. Material and methods: In the study were included 11 patients with chronic right-sided (63.6%) and left-sided (36.4%) hemiparesis after ischemic stroke within 3 months. Investigated persons are measured on the test performance of Berg (Berg Balance Scale-BBS) at the beginning of the 10th day, 1st month and 3th month. Patients after 10-day daily physical therapy continued with an adapted program for home rehabilitation and requirements for it. Results: After the analysis of the difference between the average values of the static and functional balance is established that, in the initial period there is greater improvement in the functional balance of 0.086 with a significance level of 0.05. In the period from day 10 to the 1st of the month, and the 1st to the 3rd month has a greater improvement in the static balance of 0.12 and with a significance level of 0.05. Discussion: The applied by us methodology continued later as an exercise program at home, has a tendency to improve postural control and balance reactions in patients with ischemic stroke in the chronic period. Keywords: Static balance, Functional balance, Kinesitherapy, Ischemic stroke, Chronic period
