BRUNNSTROM STAGES OF RECOVERY STROKE PDF

The Brunnstrom stages also called the Brunnstrom Approach are used by many physical therapists to assess how well their patients are recovering. The seven Brunnstrom stages were developed in the s by Swedish physical therapist Signe Brunnstrom as a framework to understand how muscle control can be restored after stroke. What makes the Brunnstrom approach so unique is how it views spasticity and involuntary muscle movement. Instead of seeing these as symptoms to fight, the Brunnstrom approach views them as part of the recovery process and utilizes them to aid recovery! Stage 1: Flaccidity The first stage of the Brunnstrom approach is the period immediately after a stroke when the connection between the muscles and brain are so damaged that flaccid paralysis flaccidity sets in.

The Brunnstrom Approach

Evidence-Based Treatment Swedish occupational and physical therapist Signe Brunnstrom was an important figure in advancing our understanding about restoring motor skills in stroke patients. Based on different limb synergies, she devised a way to organize stroke survivors into categories or stages of recovery. Her method, the Brunnstrom Approach , involves seven stages of stroke recovery, the Brunnstrom Stages, that break down how stroke patients can regain motor control throughout their bodies. Muscle movements normally come from different muscle groups working together. Researchers refer to these patterns of activity as synergies. The brain is in charge of coordinating these movements, and a stroke can moderately or severely damage them. The Brunnstrom Stages were developed at the same time as protocols for interventions that relate to each stage.
