In static standing 32 %, in dynamic standing 22 %, in gait 26 % and in stairing 14 % participants were became complete independent after receiving physiotherapy. A standard questionnaire was used to collect data and outcome was measured by Functional Independent Measurement (FIM) scale. Cross sectional study design was selected for this study Data was analyzed by SPSS software version 16.0 and data was analyzed through descriptive statistics by using table, pie chart and bar chart.
