Task-Oriented Progressive Resistance Training to Improve Ankle Dorsiflexion and Gait Performance: A Literature Review

Drop foot walking is a common factor of abnormal gait patterns in patients with stroke. Current approaches for stroke rehabilitation should include task-oriented training programmes. There is growing empirical evidence for the effectiveness of task-specific training in rehabilitation and for neural plastic changes following task-oriented training. This review aimed to discuss how should task-oriented progressive resistance training for improving dorsiflexion and gait performance in patients with stroke is planned.
