ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: This study examined the changes in the respiratory function when PNF chopping and lifting patterns were used in chronic stroke patients METHOD: The subjects were 30 patients diagnosed with chronic stroke. The respiratory function (FVC, FEV1, and FEV1/FVC) were measured by spirometry. Thirty subjects were divided randomly into an experimental group to which 15 PNF chopping and lifting were applied and a control group to which chest breathing exercise was performed. The intervention was conducted three times a week for six 6 weeks. To examine the effects of intervention, the pre- and post-intervention values for each group were compared using a paired t-test. An independent t-test was used to compare the differences in the values of changes pre- and postintervention in the two groups. Statistical significance was set to .05. RESULTS: Satistically significant differences in FVC and FEV1 were observed in both the experimental group and control group according to the intervention (p < .05). A statistically significant difference was found in FVC and FEV1 compared to values of changes pre- and postintervnetion between the experimental and control groups. There was no difference in FEV1/FVC. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that PNF chopping and lifting can be applied as an excellent respiratory intervention program compared to general chest breathing exercises to improve respiratory function in stroke patients.
