Abstract

After stroke, the patient may be affected by sensorimotor, musculoskeletal, perceptual and congenital sequelae. Several motor impairments, such as balance changes, motor coordination, loss of protective reactions, muscular strength, muscle tone, and range of motion, restricting essential actions such as maintaining posture in orthostatism and walking. In addition, sleep disorders are evidently common in this population. In this sense, we will explore the hypothesis that the physical therapy treatment with Global Posture Reeducation (GPR) could improve the motor rehabilitation (functional mobility, ability in daily life activities) in patients after stroke, besides sleep. For this, the patients, of both sexes, with 18 years or more will be allocated in 2 groups: GPR and control. All patients will receive physiotherapeutic care in a clinical setting. Motor rehabilitation and sleep will be evaluated subjectively (questionnaires) and objective (computerized photographs, manovacuometry and polysomnography), before and after the intervention, and 1 and 3 month of follow-up. Understanding the effect of GPR as a physiotherapeutic resource and its impact on motor rehabilitation, sleep, and consequently the post-stroke phenotype may be a viable strategy as a therapeutic measure for this growing population.
