Purpose: To monitor the effect of a comprehensive kinesitherapy approach in patients with plexitis of pl.brachialis.
Material and methods: The study was conducted with 16 patients (mean age 49.1 ± 6.8 years) with plexitis of pl.brachialis in the subacute stage and stable hemodynamics (blood pressure is below 140/90 mmHg). The early (10th day) and late (1st month) effect of the application of specialized kinesitherapy in unilateral manifestation of symptoms is evaluated, in which exercises are introduced for: reduction of pain and compensatory spasm; for gradual adaptation of the musculoskeletal system; to normalize muscle imbalance; to stimulate proprio- and exteroreceptors; for analytical effect on muscle strength; to improve normal postural mechanisms; for relaxation and body recovery after exercises, through breathing and relaxing exercises. Functional examinations are manual muscle test, centimetry and goniometry.
Results: The present study shows that a comprehensive kinesitherapy approach permanently improves functional capabilities of motor recovery in patients with plexitis of pl.brachialis. The results are most pronounced at 1 month of treatment (p <0.001).
Conclusion: The improvement is related to the long-term application of the methodology in relation to the modern principles of kinesitherapy and the application of specialized techniques for mobilization of the cervical part and shoulder complex.
