ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS
Research background

The rehabilitation of limb function in patients with limb movement disorders after stroke is influenced by their psychological state.

Research motivation

Exploring whether healthcare workers can accelerate the recovery of limb function in stroke patients by improving their psychological state and indirectly improving their quality of life.

Research objectives

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the level of motor rehabilitation and the psychological state of patients with limb movement disorders post stroke.

Research methods

Eighty patients with limb dysfunction after stroke were retrospectively selected. The Fugl-Meyer assessment motor function and Barthel index daily living ability scales were used to investigate limb movement disorders and daily living ability, and a correlation between the two indices and psychological state was observed.

Research results

There was a negative correlation between negative emotions and limb rehabilitation and between negative emotions and daily living ability.

Research conclusions

The better the psychological state of patients with limb movement disorders after stroke, the more significant the rehabilitation effect on limb function recovery.

Research perspectives

When performing limb function rehabilitation in patients with limb movement disorders after stroke, it is necessary to pay attention to the patient’s psychological state. A good psychological state can accelerate recovery.
