Le réentrainement à l’effort dans le parcours de soins du patient traumatisé crânien breton.

Abstract : The incidence of traumatic brain injury in Brittany is one of the highest in France. Throughout his care pathway, the patient benefits from physical conditioning, however, no recommendation is given to the physiotherapist. The aim of this study is to identify the interests and modalities for carrying-out physical conditioning for patient who have suffered from traumatic brain injury in Brittany. Method : a qualitative study has been carried out through semi-structured interviews with physiotherapists of rehabilitation center or who had an independent practice. Results : the results indicated that modalities of physical conditioning depended on patient’s motor skills. Activities on ergometers was the most used, their implementation methods were varied and no specific protocol for patients who suffered from traumatic brain injury was used. Ecological activities, muscle strengthening and circuit training were also identified. In independent practice, professionals and modalities were not exactly similar. The main interests identified by professionals were the improvement of physical fitness, well-being and socio-professional integration. Discussion : all the professionals interviewed felt that there is a lack of recommendations in order to propose the most appropriate exercise for the patient who suffered from traumatic brain injury. This study reveals that many beneficial effects are observed by the professionnals but they need for more recommendations in order to propose the most effective treatment. This study opens the way for future researches which could propose a protocol adapted to the characteristics of this population.
