Physiotherapic exercises for stroke rehabilitation (with videos)

Stroke is one of the most pressing causes of intellectual and motor disability. Although it is an acute vascular damage to the brain, it can cause damage to the whole body, and these require interdisciplinary rehabilitation practices.
In the following, we show some examples of useful physiotherapic exercises during the post-stroke rehabilitation.

Exercise 1
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-concept (PNF-concept): it is intended for strengthening the muscles of the upper limb, e.g. shoulder.
Exercise 2
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-concept (PNF-concept): it is intended for strengthening the muscles of the upper limb, e.g. shoulder.
Exercise 3
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-concept (PNF-concept): it shows turning on the hip across the pelvis, in order for the patient to learn turning through guidance.
Exercise 4
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-concept (PNF-concept): it shows putting the patient from lying on the side position to the side in a sitting position with legs across the side.
Exercise 5
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation-concept (PNF-concept): it shows putting a patient into the sitting position on a wheelchair using a swivel plate.

Videos have been recorded at the Open Door Day Neurological Activity of the General Hospital of Izola (Izola, 2019).

Note: These exercises have not to be considered as lessons for doctors but only examples for patients and their relatives.
