Effect of sensorial stimulations on postural disturbances related to spatial cognition disorders after stroke

Abstract

Balance disorders related to disturbances in perception of spatial reference systems are common especially after right hemispheric stroke. Mental misrepresentation of bodily orientation in space is then often superimposed upon other factors affecting imbalance such as motor and sensory impairments. Traditional rehabilitation for balance recovery has not been specifically designed to improve balance disorders related to spatial cognition. The traditional approach, consisting of stimulating the conscious perception of body orientation in space, is demanding and laborious. The approach based on sensorial stimulation is completely different. The relevance of this method lies in the fact that, firstly it is specifically active in the cognitive component of balance disorders; and secondly, it can passively be applied with minimal patient participation, which is of particular importance for this patient group characterized by disorders of attention and concentration. These techniques, such as proprioceptive, visual or vestibular stimulation, have been found to correct spatial neglect but also postural bias. Clinical and data from functional neuro-imaging suggest a direct central action on cortical structures involved in the elaboration of spatial representation. These are promising techniques for the rehabilitation of postural disturbances related to spatial cognition disorders but are as yet at the stage of preliminary results
