Summary of "Effects of Elastic Therapeutic Taping on Joint Position Sense of the Ankle in Stroke Survivors."

Impairments in ankle joint position sense along with muscle weakness greatly affect the recovery of balance among stroke survivors. Elastic therapeutic taping has been studied in musculoskeletal conditions of the ankle to improve joint position sense and its effects in stroke are not known. The objective of this study was to investigate the differences in joint position sense between paretic and non-paretic ankles; and to examine the effects of elastic therapeutic taping on joint position sense of the paretic ankle in stroke survivors. Sixteen chronic stroke survivors participated in a two-day protocol of ankle elastic therapeutic taping on the paretic side. Active and passive joint position sense at the ankle was measured by Biodex Isokinetic ш system on both the paretic and non-paretic sides before elastic therapeutic taping and only the paretic side after elastic therapeutic taping. The active and passive ankle joint position sense values were significantly (P<0.001) lower on the paretic side than the non-paretic side before intervention. Joint position sense significantly (P<0.001) improved for the paretic ankle after elastic therapeutic taping. Chronic stroke survivors were deficient in ankle joint position sense on the paretic side. elastic therapeutic taping was effective in the short-term to improve active and passive joint position sense.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.

The effects on gene expression that depend on the location of a gene with respect to its neighboring genes and region of chromosome. Stable position effects are sequence dependent. Variegated position effects depend on whether the gene is located in or adjacent to HETEROCHROMATIN or EUCHROMATIN.

Replacement of the ANKLE JOINT.

A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains ELASTIC FIBERS and elastic lamellae, in addition to the normal components of HYALINE CARTILAGE matrix. Elastic cartilage is found in the EXTERNAL EAR; EUSTACHIAN TUBE; EPIGLOTTIS; and LARYNX.
