Effectiveness of Action Observation Therapy versus Motor Relearning Program on Upper Extremity Function among MCA Stroke Survivors

Aswathy Unnikrishnan, Roshan Thomas Abraham

The upper limb paralysis is a common and undesirable consequence of all types of stroke that leads to functional limitations such as dressing, bathing, self-care, writing etc. Even though there are many rehabilitation methods to improve upper limb function, it is necessary to investigate an effective method to improve upper extremity function for stroke survivors. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To compare the effect of Action Observation Therapy and Motor Relearning Program in improving motor function, handgrip strength and functional activity of upper extremity in MCA stroke patient. METHODOLOGY: Thirty MCA stroke patients were assessed and selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria and divide equally into two groups, Group A and Group B. Each group consists of 15 subjects. Group A received Action Observation Therapy and Group B received Motor Relearning Program 1 hr a day, 6 days/week for 8 weeks. The outcome measures were assessed using Fugal Meyer score for upper extremity, Upper Extremity Function Test, Modified Sphygmomanometer Test. RESULT: In comparison between groups, the calculated value for motor function is 4.11 with p
