Special Issue "Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery"
A special issue of Medicina (ISSN 1010-660X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2019).
Current best practice in stroke management aims to reduce the initial impact of brain damage, take precautions to avoid the further burden of complications, and maximize functional recovery through extensive rehabilitation treatment. Considering stroke as a multidimensional condition depending on the part of the body or type of ability affected, a multidisciplinary management is required.
As for stroke rehabilitation, there are many approaches including medications for the management of several post-stroke conditions (e.g. spasticity, pain, depression), physical therapy (e.g. range-of-motion therapy, motor-skill exercises, mobility training, constraint-induced movement therapy), technology-assisted training (e.g. electromechanical or robotic technology, virtual reality, telerehabilitation technology, wireless technology), cognitive or emotional treatment (e.g. therapy for cognitive and communication disorders, psychological management), and others (e.g. noninvasive brain stimulation, functional electrical stimulation, alternative medicine).
I invite you to submit original research articles and reviews that will contribute to the field of stroke rehabilitation according to the issues described above. There is a particular interest in articles proposing evidence of innovative approaches as well as in those aimed at comparing the effects of different treatment protocols therapies, including cost-effectiveness analyses.
