Physical rehabilitation approaches for the recovery of function and mobility following stroke. Various approaches to physical rehabilitation may be used after stroke, and considerable controversy and debate surround the effectiveness of relative approaches. Some physiotherapists base their treatments on a single approach; others use a mixture of components from several different approaches.To determine whether physical rehabilitation approaches are effective in recovery of function and mobility (...) in people with stroke, and to assess if any one physical rehabilitation approach is more effective than any other approach.For the previous versions of this review, the objective was to explore the effect of 'physiotherapy treatment approaches' based on historical classifications of orthopaedic, neurophysiological or motor learning principles, or on a mixture of these treatment principles.

156. The consumption of alanerv® nutritional supplement and the dynamic of some inflammatory markers in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. (PubMed)

The consumption of alanerv® nutritional supplement and the dynamic of some inflammatory markers in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. Stroke is followed by an inflammatory response lasting up to several months. Moreover, many of the stroke-related comorbidities (i.e., diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and atherosclerosis) are characterized by an pro-inflammatory status.We designed this pilot study to evaluate the relation between the consumption (...) of a nutritional supplement (ALAnerv®) and the dynamic of the inflammatory status in post-acute stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation. The study population comprised 28 patients which were assigned into two study groups, named (-) ALA and (+) ALA. All subjects followed the same rehabilitation program. There were no significant differences in respect to the standard medication between the groups. Moreover, patients from the (+) ALA group received ALAnerv® for two weeks (2 pills/day).
