Predictors of success of low-intensity specific physiotherapy in functional movement disorders
Chmelíková, Petra ; Serranová, Tereza (advisor) ; Vogner, Martin (referee)
Introduction: Functional movement disorders are a nosological entity falling within the group of functional neurological disorders. Despite their relatively common occurrence, this area at the intersection of neurology and psychiatry is clinically and research-wise overlooked. However, they typically manifest as chronic conditions causing significant disability to patients. Specific physiotherapy is considered the first-line treatment for most patients; however, indicators of its effectiveness are currently lacking. Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate whether selected variables - the number of hours of completed physiotherapy, duration of the illness, and expression of a fibromyalgia- like pattern - can serve as suitable predictors of the success of physiotherapy in functional movement disorders. Methods: This is a retrospective study conducted on a sample of patients with functional movement disorders (n=18). Before the intervention, patients completed questionnaires assessing fibromyalgia-like patterns - the Widespread Pain Index and Symptom Severity Index. Subsequently, they underwent specific physiotherapy sessions, with variations in the number and time period of therapy sessions among patients. During the final physiotherapy session, improvement in symptoms over the...
Exercise, side effects of anti-epilepsy drugs and quality of life in patients with epilepsy
Šimonová, Lucie ; Javůrková, Alena (advisor) ; Vogner, Martin (referee)
Background: This bachelor's thesis examines the relationship between physical activity and sociodemographic variables, clinical variables of epilepsy, anxiety, depression and attentional executions, and adverse effects of ASM. Aims: The aim was to investigate how patients who have physical activity differ from those who do not on sociodemographic variables, clinical variables of epilepsy, adverse effects of epilepsy, anxiety, depression and attentional executions, quality of life and adverse effects of ASM. Methods: 235 patients were included in this retrospective cross-sectional study. Patients were examined at the Centre for Epilepsy Treatment, Department of Neurology, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and Motol University Hospital. Dg. of epilepsy was determined by a physician. All patients signed the IS and the research was approved by the EC. Descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, median, minimum, maximum, absolute and relative frequencies) were used to describe the variables. Spearman's correlation coefficient, Student's t-test, and Kruskal-Wallis test were used to analyze the hypotheses and ANOVA was used.Chi-square test was used for discrete variables and logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratio (OR). Results: We were able to demonstrate a relationship...
The effect of fine motor skills training on cognitive functions in patients after stroke
Svobodová, Kateřina ; Grünerová Lippertová, Marcela (advisor) ; Vogner, Martin (referee)
Tittle: The effect of fine motor skills training on cognitive functions in patients after stroke. Objective: The objective of this work is to determine the effect of fine motor skills training on cognitive functions in patients after stroke and if they differ from patients not undergoing this training. Methods: The research group consists of 9 stroke patients hospitalised at the Clinic of medial rehabilitation of FNKV in Prague. 5 of the participants were in the experimental group. They underwent initial examination of cognitive functions and fine motor skills, after that they underwent three weeks of intensive fine motor skills training. At the end the same final examination was made again. 4 participants were in the control group, which did the inital and final examination, but didn't participate in the training added by this study. Paired and non-paired t-tests were used to analyse the result data. Results: The research showed a positive effect and more prominent improvement in MoCA-CZ3 cognitive test in patients who underwent the three weeks of intensive training of fine motor skills than in patients in the control group undergoing the basic care program of the clinic. Conclusion: The training of patients in fine motor skills caused more prominent improvement of cognitive functions and fine...
