Abstract

[Purpose] The study examined the association between pelvic tilt and basic movements in the sitting position in hemiplegic stroke patients. [Subjects] The subjects consisted of 28 hemiplegic stroke patients (17 males and 11 females). [Methods] As measurement items, anterior and posterior pelvic tilt, pelvic range of motion, basic movements (standing up, sitting down, standing,standing on one leg, walking), Brunnstrom stages, and lower limb muscle strength in the sitting po sition during active exercise were evaluated, and factors associated with the capacity for basic movements were analyzed. [Results] There was a significant correlation between basic movements other than standing on one leg and anterior pelvic tilt, whereas, no significant correlation was observed among each measurement item, the posterior pelvic tilt, and pelvic range of motion. [Conclusion] The results suggest that the ability to anteriorly tilt the pelvis during active exercise may be associated with basic movements in hemiplegic stroke patients.
