Hi for all
I'm studying some things about hemiparesis and I would like some clearings about this. The person that have hemiparesis does physiotherapy. He/she executes exercises, right? What are the types of these exercises? Is there a specifics exercises for the right and left hemiparesis? I've read that the treatment is continued on the patient's house. He/she makes simple exercises like hold the knife with the hand of the affected side. My question is: is there specific exercises that the person should execute? More: For the doctor is important to know what exercises was maded by the patient in their house?

Thanks for your help

  • Hi Alex-In a very general sense, any patient with brain injury, regardless of etiology or resulting deficit, might benefit from neurorehabilitation. The therapy prescribed would then be physical and occupational and employ many different techniques that are tailored to the needs of the patient. If you are trying to determine the pt needs for a specific person in your life, you need to address these questions directly to that individuals care provider. Independent research is wonderful, but especially in the instance of rehabilitation and therapy, an open dialogue is critical.
