ABSTRACT

Objectives This study was conducted to verify the effectiveness of east-west integrative rehabilitation therapy on activity of daily living and cognitive functional recovery in stroke patients by comparing with integrative rehabilitation therapy group and conventional rehabilitation therapy group in a single institution. Methods The medical records of 106 stroke patients hospitalized in Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Dongguk University Bundang Oriental Hospital from January 1, 2017 to February 28, 2019 were reviewed. After screening and dividing it into conventional rehabilitation (CR) group and integrative rehabilitation (IR) group, Korean version of Modified Barthel Index (K-MBI), functional independence measure (FIM), clinical dementia rating-sum of boxes (CDR-SB) were statistically analyzed. Results IR group showed significant improvement in K-MBI, FIM, and CDR-SB after treatment (p<0.001) and there was a statistically significant difference in K-MBI and CDR-SB score changes than CR group (p<0.05). And chronic patient of IR group showed significant improvement in K-MBI, FIM, and CDR-SB after treatment (p<0.01) and there was a statistically significant difference in CDR-SB score changes than CR group (p<0.05). In particular, the earlier the treatment initiation time, the more the improvement in function and when the treatment started within 2 years from the onset and patients took acupuncture and pulsed electromagnetic therapy, all scales significantly improved (p<0.001). Conclusions IR showed more improvement on activities of daily life and cognitive functional recovery than CR in this study. (J Korean Med Rehabil 2020;30(2):105-123)
