Analysis on the Effect of Modified Taijiquan on Stroke Patients in Rehabilitation of Movement Function

Gaofeng Zhang


Objective: To evaluate the effect of modified Taijiquan on rehabilitation of movement function in stroke patients. Methods: A total of 34 patients from Neurology and Rehabilitation Clinic or Hospitalized Patients from March 2016 to January 2017 were randomly divided into observation group and control group. The control group was treated with modern rehabilitation techniques, mainly using Bobath rehabilitation technique, which played a role in enhancing muscle strength and activating passive joints. The observation groups of 17 patients in the control group were given the modified Taijiquan rehabilitation exercise. Improved international standard routines Taijiquan include: starting, reeling brachial, hug kneeling, flock, wild horse mane, and cloud hand and so on. The safety of rehabilitation techniques was evaluated by recording the body temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure and other indicators. The therapeutic effect was evaluated by FMA scale and Berg balance scale. Results: After treatment with different rehabilitation techniques, the two groups of patients had different degrees of improvement. The FAM upper limb, lower limb, total score and Berg score of the observation group were significantly higher than those of the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P <0.05 ). Conclusion: The improved tai chi rehabilitation technique can significantly improve the limb function and balance ability of stroke patients, improve the quality of life and enrich the rehabilitation therapy of stroke hemiplegia patients.
