THURSDAY, Aug. 22, 2019 -- Stroke survivors can recover their walking ability faster through high-intensity step training than with less demanding rehab, a new study suggests.
"Rehabilitation after a stroke traditionally focuses on patients practicing low-intensity walking, usually only in a forward direction, which does not provide enough of a challenge to the nervous system to enable patients to negotiate real-world situations, such as uneven surfaces, stairs or changing direction," explained study author T. George Hornby. He's a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Indiana University School of Medicine.
