Agnieszka Drozd, Maja Nowacka-Kłos, Rita Hansdorfer-Korzon – Possibilities of physiotherapeutic treatment in the case of patients with pusher syndrome. Fizjoterapia Polska 2023; 23(3); 146-164
The consequences of damage to brain structures often includes various types of perceptual and motor disorders. One of them is Pusher Syndrome (PS). It is defined as a disturbance in the perception of the body position in the frontal plane, which in turn makes it difficult to maintain a correct vertical posture. It occurs most often in patients after a stroke of the right hemisphere of the brain, in the posterolateral region of the thalamus, and its frequency is estimated at about 9–50%. However, it is still a little-known syndrome and too rarely diagnosed. Correct, early diagnosis of pusher syndrome and the introduction of appropriate physiotherapy allows us to shorten the patient’s rehabilitation time and speed up his/her recovery. The objective of the study is to present the principles and possibilities of therapy for patients with pusher syndrome.
