Abstract

Background: Trunk function in stroke patients with hemiplegia is associated with respiration and core stability, and is also found to be associated with balance and postural control and daily activity of life. Liuzijue Qigong (LQG) is a traditional Chinese method of fitness based on breath pronunciation. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy of LQG and traditional core stability training in the treatment of stroke patients with abnormal trunk posture. This protocol is written according to the SPIRT 2013 Statement. Methods: This study is a single-center randomized controlled trial in which 160 stroke patients are randomly divided into study group and control group. Patients in the study group will receive LQG combined with conventional rehabilitation therapy, while patients in the control group will receive traditional core stability training combined with conventional rehabilitation therapy. All treatments will be treated 45 minutes a day, 5 times a week for 2 weeks. Primary outcome (Trunk impairment scale) and secondary outcome (Berg balance scale, Fugl-Meyer assessment, Modified barthel index, Maximum phonation time, Dynamic and Static Balance Testing and The thickness and the Mobile degrees of diaphragm) will be conducted at baseline, 2 weeks at the end of the rehabilitation course. Discussion: The aim of this research is to compare the clinical efficacy of LQG and traditional core stability exercise in the treatment of stroke patients with abnormal trunk posture.
