Raahi. Pathan | Dr. Prasanna Mohan | Dr. Swetha Parameswaran


Abstract: Background: 'stroke' is a common cause of death in the adult population in 21st century. Some form of cognition impairment occurs among 72% of stroke patients. After the stroke, getting back to a good cognitive condition along with functional independence can be challenging and sometimes is a long - term process of recovery. Two third of stroke survivors exhibit cognitive impairment issues post - stroke. Conventional physiotherapy plays a crucial role in retaining the patient?s cognition, independence, and regular functional activities after a stroke. Aim: This study aims to conduct a review of current available evidence and studies on the effect of balance training on retaining cognition in post - stroke patients. Methods: This review adheres to the Prisma guidelines and employs a comprehensive search strategy of pubmed, PEDro, cureus, elsevier, frontiers, google scholar, ScienceDirect, and research open databases to identify relevant articles. Inclusion criteria are applied to select articles published between 2000 and 2022 for analysis in this review. Results: Based on the inclusion criteria, 7 studies were included. The result of this review provides evidence that balance training shows a significant impact on retaining cognition in stroke patients. Conclusion: The result of this review provides evidence that many stroke patients show cognitive impairment post - stroke. Balance training helps in improving cognition, giving better results than conventional therapy alone. Implications: We can optimize recovery by using balance training alone with conventional therapy and design them in a way that can closely match the activities of daily living.
