Exploring Sex Effects in Rehabilitation Medicine

Abstract

Body

Despite evidence supporting sex-inclusive science, awareness of sex-based factors has not translated to neuro-rehabilitation where “the medicine” is often the therapeutic intervention. Optimal neuro-rehabilitation is key to preventing further injury and treating chronic conditions such as stroke; with the goal to help women return to their workplaces, families, and community commitments as quickly as possible. Recent clinical trials support the therapeutic utility of rTMS for a variety of disorders, including stroke, where a hyperexcitable unlesioned motor cortex can be targeted with slow frequency stimulation (1 Hz rTMS) (see Ref. [1] for review).
