OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of thermal stimulation accompanied by either active or passive movement added to standard rehabilitation in facilitating motor and balance function of the paretic leg of acute stroke. DESIGN Pilot, observer-blinded, randomized clinical trial. SETTING Department of rehabilitation medicine in a general hospital. SUBJECTS Thirty-six patients were enrolled within four weeks of the onset of a stroke causing moderate to severe leg paresis (Brunnstrom… CONTINUE READING
