Abstract

Topicality. Currently, the number of patients with severe neurological disorders is growing catastrophically rapidly all over the world, and in particular in Ukraine. The most common of which are сerebrovascular accidents (brain attacks), such as hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes. Most researchers have focused on the patients` rehabilitation after the ischemic stroke. That has led to study and update the recovery program for individuals after hemorrhagic stroke. The WHO estimates that a significant number of stroke patients have been identified as disabled and need a lifelong care. Therefore, the introduction of the proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) methods into the physical therapy program for patients after surgical treatment of hemorrhagic stroke during the post-hospital period is urgent. Research purpose is to analyze the use of the PNF method in physical therapy of patients after surgical hemorrhagic stroke treatment during the post-hospital period. Research methods are analysis of literature sources with further processing of research data on the effectiveness of the PNF method in the program of patients recovery after surgical hemorrhagic stroke treatment during the post-hospital period by assessing functional independence and muscle strength. Results of the research. An insufficient number of used means of recovery and a tendency to occupational therapy within the physical therapy programs of patients after surgical hemorrhagic stroke treatment during the post-hospital period has been revealed. Therefore, the PNF method has been developed and introduced into the FT program of patients after hemorrhagic stroke treatment during the post-hospital period. Conclusions. The proposed method improved the connection between muscles and innervating nerves, which reduced spasticity, improved muscle strength and increased functional independence of patients after hemorrhagic stroke during the post-hospital period of physical therapy.
