Trial Description

Study was conducted Effectiveness of Motor Relearning Programme and Mirror Therapy along with Conventional Physiotherapy treatment for improving Hand Function In Patients with stroke. study was an experimental study conducted on 12 stroke patients using convenient sampling method .Subjects were divided into two equal groups (n=6). Group A was given conventional physiotherapy and Motor Relearning Programme exercises for the affected hand and Group B received conventional physiotherapy for the affected hand and mirror therapy for the unaffected hand. Chedoke arm and hand inventory (CAHAI) was used as primary outcome measure for evaluation of hand function before and after application of therapeutic Intervention

Detailed Description

Title: Effectiveness of Motor Relearning Programme and Mirror Therapy along with Conventional Physiotherapy treatment for improving Hand Function In Patients with stroke.
Background Upper extremity complications are common following stroke. Individuals who have sustained stroke are often left with residual motor deficits of the upper limb. These deficits restrict functional use of the limb in everyday activities and can result in increased dependen cy upon others to engage in some tasks.
Objectives Present study aims to see effectiveness of mirror therapy and Motor Relearning Programme for improving hand functions in stroke.
Materials and Methods Present study was an experimental study conducted on 12 stroke patients using convenient sampling method .Subjects were divided into two equal groups (n=6). Group A was given conventional physiotherapy and Motor Relearning Programme exercises for the affected hand and Group B received conventional physiotherapy for the affected hand and mirror therapy for the unaffected hand. Chedoke arm and hand inventory (CAHAI) was used as primary outcome measure for evaluation of hand function before and after application of therapeutic Intervention

Conditions

Interventions

  • Mirror therapy Other
    Intervention Desc: Mirror therapy in which patient was seated close to the table in front of mirror (35x35 cm). The involved hand was placed behind the mirror. : the practice consisted of intransitive exercises as Hand opening, Wrist extension and flexion, Forearm pronation and supination, Hand sliding on a flat surface. During the session patient were asked to try to do the same movement with the paretic hand while they were moving the non-paretic hand.In both the groups total treatment was given for 1 hour/day for 6 days/week
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: GROUP B
    Description: Group B received Mirror therapy in which patient was seated close to the table in front of mirror (35x35 cm).
