Karthiga Ramanaa | Prasanna Mohan [4]


Abstract: This study is about mirror therapy and motor relearning program and to investigate their role in hand recovery in chronic stroke patients. An inclusive search on PubMed, PEDro, Goggle Scholar databases using keywords Mirror Therapy, Motor relearning program, chronic stroke, Upper limb. Randomized controlled trails, Quasi - experimental studies published since 2010were taken.15 studies were included in the study. The result of this review provides evidence that both MRP and MT have a significant positive effect on the improvement of the gross motor and fine motor functions of the upper extremity of patients suffering from chronic stroke, giving better results than conventional therapy alone. This study will show the benefits of both interventions and that we can optimise recovery by using both interventions in conjunction with each other and design them in a way that closely emulates activities of daily life.
