Motor Function, Ischemic Stroke, Theraband PNF (Proprioseptive Neuromuscular Facilitatio)


Ischemic stroke is a disorder in the central nervous system that occurs suddenly and quickly. Stroke patients experience decreased motor function that occurs due to a thrombus or embolism in the blood flow to the brain that causes a decrease in CBF (Cerebral Blood Flow), so that patients experience limited mobilization. Nursing actions that can be done that is by providing theraband exercise with PNF techniques. This action can increase neural activity that produces NO (Nitric Oxide) which can cause relaxation of cerebral blood vessels and cause increased CBF.

The implementation method is by giving lectures, discussions and question and answer about the impact of ischemic stroke and PNF theraband exercises, as well as conducting demonstrations of techniques for implementing PNF theraband exercises in ischemic stroke patients at RSI Jemursari Surabaya.

The pretest and posttest results which were attended by 32 respondents almost all showed an increase in scores after attending counseling. It can be stated that patients and their families understand and understand the impact of ischemic stroke and the importance of PNF theraband exercises for ischemic stroke patients to practice the independence of post stroke patients.

The conclusion from this counseling is that PNF theraband exercises can help improve motor function through increasing CBF so that patients can carry out activities independently.
