Background Physical activity (PA) is believed to improve mental health, including depression. However, whether recommended PA levels have a similar impact in individuals with poststroke depression is unclear. Objective The aim of this study was to apply a quasi-experimental propensity score (PS) matching control for covariate differences and compare the(More)
Background. Approximately 35,000 strokes occur annually in adults below the age of 40, and there is disappointingly little data describing their responses to rehabilitation. The purpose of this analysis was to determine the effects of Poststroke Optimization of Walking using Explosive Resistance (POWER) training in young (<40 years) and older (>60 years)(More)
BACKGROUND Lower extremity muscle weakness is a primary contributor to post-stroke dysfunction. Resistance training is an effective treatment for hemiparetic weakness and improves walking performance. Post-stroke subject characteristics that do or do not improve walking speed following resistance training are unknown. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine whether therapeutic ultrasound (TUS) delivered in a continuous mode reduces pain perception after muscle injury. DESIGN Randomized, double-blind trial. SETTING Institutional laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Twenty young healthy participants (11 females; 9 males; mean age ± SD, 24.1 ± 3.7 years). INTERVENTION All subjects performed 50(More)
Objective and importance Residual effects of stroke include well-documented functional limitations and high prevalence of depression. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and aerobic exercise (AEx) are established techniques that improve depressive symptoms, but a combination of the two has yet to be reported. The purpose of this case series(More)
BACKGROUND One-third of individuals with stroke report symptoms of depression, which has a negative impact on recovery. Physical activity (PA) is a potentially effective therapy. Our objective was to examine the associations of subjectively assessed PA levels and symptoms of depression in a nationally representative stroke sample. METHODS We conducted a(More)
