Abstract: Background: Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in India and also one of the leading causes of functional impairment. Stroke affects the Trunk Performance, Static and Dynamic Balance and also the level of independence in Activities of Daily Living. Objectives: To find a correlation between Trunk Impairment, Static and Dynamic Balance and its effect on Activities of Daily Living. Method: This study included 72 patients of chronic stroke according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Then Trunk performance was evaluated by Trunk Impairment Scale (TIS), Static Balance, Dynamic Balance and Activities of Daily Living were evaluated by Frailty and Injuries Cooperative Studies of Intervention Techniques-4 (FICSIT-4), Timed Up and Go test (TUG) and Barthel Index (BI) respectively. Statistical analysis was done by using SPSS software (version 20). Spearman’s Rank correlation test was applied. Result: Spearman’s Rank correlation showed highly significant correlation between TIS, FICSIT-4, TUG and BI scores as their p-values were <0.01. Conclusion: The study reveals that the Trunk Impairment, Static and Dynamic Balance as well as Activities of Daily Livings are strongly correlated with each other.
