  • Functional Training Interventions

    their balance if it involves serious injuries to any limbs. After a serious injury, it is common for someone to give the limb some rest time to recover, for example an ankle injury, after several weeks of no exercise the muscles becomes atrophy, as the article states “ Bilateral locomotor abnormalities, attribute to deficits in the ability to shift body weight on to the paretic limb” (Carolee, 1989) making it difficult to walk on the injury as well as putting more pressure on the unimpaired ankle. This article shows a study they performed on several FUNCTONAL CONTROL TRAINING WITH VR AND THE EFFCTS IN A CLINIC 3 patients who needed any type of assistance to move or walk. The way measurements were taken was by first taking the center of pressure, which allowed the therapist to “derive indicants of position, weight distribution, and stability” (Carolee, 1989). The second thing measured was the weight being distributed in the paretic limb and unimpaired limb using a force plate. From these measurements, they could determine the weight difference being distributed throughout the limbs. The therapy that takes place involves, coordination training, sitting balance activity’s, strengthen activities and motor control facilitation. Functional training also takes place which involves walking, transferring to a wheel chair or in and out of bed, as well as weight shifting and weight balance training. These interventions will help muscle weakness, joint stiffness and even inner ear…

  • Cerebrovascular Accidents

    The purpose of this literature review paper is to analyze the use of proprioception training in individuals who have suffered a cerebrovascular accident, most commonly referred to as a stroke. As defined in the textbook (Coker, 2013), proprioception is “the continuous flow of sensory information received from receptors located in the muscles, tendons, joints, and inner ear regarding movement and body position.” A stroke can affect various areas of the brain, including those involved in balance…
