Questions related to Neuropsychological Rehabilitation
I, Darshan Prakashbhai Parmar, MPT student, from Government Physiotherapy College Jamnagar, am conducting a survey on 'EFFICACY OF PELVIC PNF TO IMPROVE TRUNK CONTROL, BALANCE AND GAIT PATTERN IN NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS' as a part of my Evidence Based Study(EBS) under the supervision of my Guide, Dr. Karishma Jagad (MPT-NEURO), Sr. Lecturer at Government Physiotherapy College Jamnagar.
We therefore request physiotherapists practicing in India to kindly fill this questionnaire, which will hardly take around 10-15 minutes. The link for the survey is provided below. The responses will be kept anonymous.
I further request you to forward the link to your friends or colleagues.
*(In case the link does not open, please copy and paste the link in your web browser or you can whatsapp me on +917984377793, I will share the form link there.)*
Thank you for your time and participation.
Take care and stay safe
Please share your favorite overview of leave-one-out cross-validation technique applied to medical tests. I'm looking for the original paper/book or an overview close in time to when the technique was first introduced into the medical field. Preferably, with mathematically sound substantiation.
I am a psychomotor therapist and I am implementing cognitive remediation approaches in child psychiatry. I would like exchange with researchers and therapists about clinical practice and deep clinical know how in this area...
Is there someone interested in ?
Within physiotherapy it seem to be well established that horse-riding has positive effects on motoric skills and brain activity on persons with physical disabilities. The rhythm of horse gait seems to be a good stimulation for people that have impaired ability to walk by themselves. At the same time they might get the chance to be outside and experience nature on horseback, with the stimulating effects of being in nature together with a big, friendly horse.
In some countries there are also some small-scale trials, but mainly practical experience, of camel riding for people with disabilities, both physical and mental. Here is some info in German: http://www.therapeutisches-kamelreiten.de/therapietier_kamel.html
I am interested in if there is any investigation of camel gait (ambling) and the effect of it from a physiotherapeutic point of view, as well as compared to horse gait (walk-pace, trotting) for the same purpose.
It is easy to see that a two-humped camel may give more comfort and support for people who are not able to sit on a horse, since they can sit quite safely between the humps. But what about differences between camel ambling and horse's walk-pace? Are these differences important or not, from a physiotherapeutic viewpoint?
I am working with a mixed group of adults with post-traumatic-stress-disorder. Since it is my first time with such group I would like to know any clinical or therapy experts what is the most appropriate way to initiate therapy with such groups and if working on the periphery is a better option rather than going to the depth of the trauma.
I wonder what would be the best rehabilitation for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament by impact in a fall during a basketball game. After trying to rehabilitate by exercises with trx does not improve. which method should be used to improve this?
I am currently writin a literature review on several tools for assessing prospective memory. Would you have the normative data (sample characteristics, reliability, validity, sensitivity, specificity, etc.) of the RBMT-III and the CAMPROMPT (Wilson et al., 2008;2005) ?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Hi. As we know by stimulating special cells, doctors and scientists are able to transfer different senses such as pain to patients. Now the question is: "Is it possible to import specific data such as words in other languages to brain by extracellular stimulation? "
Rehabilitation normally consists of different types of therapies, neuropsychological rehabilitation and pharmacological treatments.
Has there been any new developments in the use of stem cell therapy in the hippocampus, use of the endocrine system to buffer against further deterioration (such as the use of melatonin), or other forms of advanced treatment that have occurred or are under way?
One aspect we lag behind in management is the timely rehabilitation in patients with TBI. Can anyone advise on the rational approach for the same in the resource restrained setup ?????
I am particularly interested in the standard of care for cognitive rehabilitiation in adults or children who have suffered a stroke.
In neuropsychological & neuro-rehabilitation there are times when we meet clients who profoundly disagree with our analysis (which I accept is only ever a hypothesis). Sometimes the nature of the disagreement might be about expected outcomes. For example "when will my hand start moving again?" might be met with a therapist's view - this is a profound paralysis explained by extent of lesion and it might not voluntarily move again - that contrasts with the patient's view "if I keep seeking opinions, keep striving, someone might be able to help restore the lost function"). There are times when it is very difficult to shift from this narrative that seems to head into persisting disagreement&disappointment, preventing adjustment & acceptance. Playing into this context is a marketplace of people with their latest gadget or therapy approach. IN my view, this can perpetuate distress. I think there are some interesting therapeutic implications but not aware of much literature on this (?). I'd be fascinated to know if this is of interest to others in this forum. What therapeutic strategies would you try?
From my practice I could see that the therapy hall, in which the children are being treated has an impact in the outcome of neurologically deficit children like cerebral palsy. Most often what the kid observes from his or her surroundings varies in case of an open therapy (where all kids gets treated in a large hall) and closed therapy (where each kid gets treated in a separate room or partitioned) environment. How can you judge this from your clinical practice treating children?
I am monitoring interventions for Parkinson's by pulse-oximeter readings for parasympathetic response, in a patient-centered design, and have seen progress in several rating scale domains, but keep having this nagging thought that if it were really possible, someone would have thought of it already.
If you could suggest holes in my reasoning it would help.
The importance of visual rehabilitation after a stroke has been increasingly acknowledged during the last years.
I know about using just the verbal tests from WAIS-1V and WMS-!V, but other suggestions would be helpful.
