Ketki Manjarkar, Dr. Suraj B. Kanase

Objectives The objective is to evaluate the effect of Departmental Conventional exercises, Structured Home exercises and the combined effect of Conventional exercises and Structured home exercises on Residual Spasticity in Chronic Stroke survivors. Methods Ethical clearance was obtained from the Institutional Ethical Committee, KIMSDU, A comparative study was conducted at Physiotherapy Department of KIMSDU. A total of 30 subjects were equally divided into two groups by lottery method (Group A and Group B). Baseline treatment was given to both the groups i.e., Conventional training. Group A was given Conventional training, Group B was given Conventional training and Structured Home Exercises. Results Statistical analysis was performed within the groups by paired t test and between the groups by unpaired t test. p values for Modified Ashworth Scale and Functional Independence Measure were calculated. While on comparing the post-interventional values, the results between the two groups using unpaired t test revealed that there was significant improvement seen in tone and functional dependence of the chronic stroke survivors. Conclusion This study concludes that, additional Structured home exercise protocol along with conventional training will be significantly effective in normalising the tone in the chronic stroke survivors.
