Background: The patients affected by stroke have been found to experience variety of difficulties. These disabilities produce physical, psychological and functional limitations in their day-to-day life. The major disruptive factor impending rehabilitation is the functional limitations of affected extremities. This study aims to compare two different concepts in clinical rehabilitation - First the Motor relearning programme and second the Progressive resisted exercise on the upper limb functions in stroke patients.
Objectives: To compare the effect of Motor relearning programme and Progressive resisted exercise is improving physical performance following stroke.
Methodology: A total of 30 patients suffering from MCA stroke aged 40-55 years were selected and randomly allocated to two experimental groups (Group I and Group II) till the number of 15 subjects were reached in each group. Assessments were done to measure level of upper extremity function using FMA (Fugl-Meyer Assessment scale) and MESUPES (Motor Evaluation Scale for Upper Extremity in Stroke). One group received Motor relearning programme and other group received progressive resistance exercise.
Result and Discussion: Both Groups show significant improvement in upper limb physical performance; comparison of both groups show significant improvement in Motor relearning programme group.
Conclusion: Motor relearning programme is more significant than progressive resistance exercise in improving upper limb physical performance following stroke.Pages: 107-112 | 506 Views 430 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
