OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of an aquatic therapy programme designed to increase balance in stroke survivors. DESIGN A randomized, controlled pilot trial. SETTING Rehabilitation department of a university hospital. SUBJECTS Ambulatory chronic stroke patients (n = 25):13 in an aquatic therapy group and 12 in a conventional therapy group. (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in cortical excitability of the human motor cortex induced by high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of different stimulation durations. METHODS Twenty healthy subjects participated in the study. Subjects received 20 trains of 10-Hz rTMS at 80% of the resting motor threshold (RMT) intensity(More)
UNLABELLED Kang BS, Shin HI, Bang MS. Effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation over the hand motor cortical area on central pain after spinal cord injury. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the analgesic effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) applied on the hand motor cortical area in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) who have(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare pain induced by magnetic stimulation of the quadriceps femoris (QF) muscle with that induced by transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). DESIGN Magnetic stimulation and transcutaneous NMES were applied to QF muscles of 17 normal volunteers. The intensity of each mode of stimulation(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a newly manufactured botulinum toxin, Neuronox, compared with BOTOX for the treatment of the spastic equinus gait in children with cerebral palsy. METHOD A total of 127 children with cerebral palsy, aged 2 to 10 years, who presented at three university hospitals with spastic equinus gait(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the sexual function and activity in male patients on clean intermittent catheterization with neurogenic bladder due to spinal cord injury. METHODS Eighty-nine patients (mean age 37.6 years with a range of 18-66) were included in the study. We requested all subjects to complete a questionnaire including the(More)
PURPOSE This study investigated the accessibility of medical services to people with disabilities (PWD) in Korea in comparison with the general population (GP) and examined factors influencing access to health care. METHODS Data from the 2011 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and the 2011 National Survey of Disabled People were used.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the psychological and social status of patients using clean intermittent catheterization for neurogenic bladder according to health-related quality of life (HRQOL). METHODS We conducted a prospective trial involving 132 patients (81 men and 51 women, mean age 41.8 years, range 18 to 80 years) using clean intermittent(More)
BACKGROUND It is suggested that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can produce lasting changes in corticospinal excitability and can potentially be used for the treatment of neuropathic pain. However, the detailed mechanisms underlying the effects of tDCS are unknown. OBJECTIVE We investigated the underlying neural mechanisms of tDCS for(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of back school integrated with core-strengthening exercises on back-specific disability and pain-coping strategies and to examine how reactions to pain affect the outcomes of back school in patients with chronic low back pain. DESIGN A single-center prospective trial was conducted with 142 participants with chronic low-back(More)
