Abstract :

Borges CSS, Neto GR. Therapeutic Exercise Protocols in Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury: A Systematic Review. JEPonline 2020;23(2):71-82. Individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) face obstacles that hinder equal participation in rehabilitation programs. Thus, the purpose of this review was to systematize the therapeutic exercise protocols in patients with TBI. The review took place through the database of the Virtual Health Library (VHL), Pubmed, Web of Science and Scopus considering studies from the period from January 1989 to April 2019. Based on the evidence in the literature about the rehabilitation protocols for individuals with TBI, it is clear that the interventions adopted by the scholars are diverse and 70.5% of the protocols used kinesiotherapy exercises in order to globally rehabilitate the sequelae from the TBI. However, exercise has benefits in reducing the post-injury inflammatory process. In addition, exercise has promoted neural plasticity and cognitive recovery in individuals with TBI. Keywords: Exercise Therapy, Traumatic Brain Injury
