European Neurological Review, the Peer-reviewed Journal, Publishes Article Authored by Eitan Auriel & Natan M Bornstein On Early Mobilisation Following Stroke.
Rehabilitation has been shown to influence brain recovery and to reduce the number of patients who are left handicapped following stroke; however, a question emerges in terms of the optimal time-point to initiate mobilisation. Very early mobilisation involves starting mobilisation including sitting up, getting out of bed, standing and walking, soon after stroke and continuing at frequent intervals. Several studies show evidence that very early rehabilitation has the potential to prevent complications and improve long-term outcomes compared with standard care. This article will discuss the benefits as well as safety concerns of this distinctive type of post-stroke care.
