Objective: To determine the effectiveness of balance training with Kinesthetic Ability Trainer 2000 (KAT 2000) in patients with peripheral neuropathic pain related balance disorder. ...
Patients with Parkinson's disease present motor dysfunctions such as stiffness, tremor, postural instability and bradykinesia, which leads to alterations of balance, necessitating speciali...
The sensorimotor disturbance and postural instability have been demonstrated to be associated with neck pain. Specific therapeutic exercise and manual therapy for the cervical spine are ef...
This study evaluates the effect of balance circuit in patients with more than one year of postoperative total hip or knee arthroplasty. Patients were randomized between intervention group ...
Following stroke, patients loses functions of the motor, sensory and higher brain cognitive faculties to various degrees which lead to diminished balance. It has been documented that hemip...
This study examined the benefits of and differences between 12 weeks of thrice-weekly supervised balance training and an unsupervised at-home balance activity (using the Nintendo Wii Fit) for improvi...
Multisensory reweighting (MSR) deficits in older adults contribute to fall risk. Sensory-challenge balance exercises may have value for addressing the MSR deficits in fall-prone older adults. The purp...
The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the effect of a multicomponent balance and resistance training intervention on physical function, balance, and falls in older (≥65 years) community-dwelli...
Resistance training with instability (RTI) uses exercises with high motor complexity that impose high postural control and cognitive demands that may be important for improving postural instability an...
Supervised balance training shows immediate benefit for older adults at fall risk. The long-term effectiveness of such training can be enhanced by implementing a safe and simple home exercise program ...
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).
A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.
The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.
Therapeutic exercises aimed to deepen inspiration or expiration or even to alter the rate and rhythm of respiration.
