Effectiveness of Proprioseptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) and Kinesiotaping Towards Changes in Muscle Strength and ADL Patients
INDONESIAN NURSING JOURNAL OF EDUCATION AND CLINIC (INJEC)
Stroke in the form of neurological changes caused by disruption of blood supply to brain. The problem that is often experienced by sufferers is movement disorders. One of the non-pharmacological actions Proprioseptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) techniques are very practical to use and Kinesiotaping can also help improve sensomotor ability and muscle strength of patients after stroke. The purpose of this study was determine the effectiveness of PNF and Kinesiotaping for changes in muscle
... changes in muscle strength and ADL ability of stroke patients. Methods: Quasi Experiment Design pre and post test design with a control group. The number of samples was 204 respondents were divided into three intervention groups namely PNF (61 respondents), Kinesiotaping (61 respondents), and Joint Interventions (61 respondents) and control groups (21 respondents). Sampling techniques sample using Simple Random Sampling. Results: Parameters Test Estimates P <0.05 PNF intervention results can be given a major influence on leg muscle strength (P = 0,000), MAS (P = 0.004) and ADL (P = 0,000), Kinesiotaping gives a great influence on muscle strength hands (P = 0.024), MAS (P = 0.001), ADL (P = 0.000) and Combined intervention have a an influence toward MAS (P = 0,000) and ADL (P = 0,000). Conclusions: The intervention that gives the most influence large is the Combine group against ADL by 25,737 times compared to the group control. Suggestion: For hospitals to implement the three interventions and other factors such as psychology, motivation, physiological, mechanical, and neurological strength for stroke patients.
