Spasticity Effect in relation to body mass index on dynamic postural stability in patients with stroke


Karim Ahmed Fathy , Youssef Al Baalawy , Heba Gaber Abd El Fadil

Abstract

In the general population, obesity is significantly linked to an increased risk of stroke. Lower extremity impairments are common in stroke patients. As a result, motor control is impaired, balance is compromised due to asymmetric weight support, and walking ability is limited. The purpose of this investigation was to study the internship impact of spasticity and BMI on dynamic postural stability in patients with stroke. Forty-eight patients with hemiplegia/paresis after stroke, from both genders, with an age range of 45-65 years were included. MI of patients ranged between (25-40 kg/m2). Duration of illness was over 6 months post-stroke. According to a modified Ashworth scale, patients' spasticity ranges from grade 1 to grade 4. All patients suffered from balance disturbance. This investigation revealed that there was a significant impact of BMI on TUG and FRT. There was a significant reduction in TUG of the overweight and obese subjects of mild and moderate spasticity compared with that of severe spasticity. It has been claimed that impaired balancing capability increases the risk of falling in obese people and that the incidence of falls increases as body mass increases. Obesity rehabilitation treatments for stroke patients are critical for avoiding problems‎.
