Effectiveness Motor Re-Learning along with Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation on Improving Functional Mobility in Subjects with Chronic Stroke

Dr. Kusum Agarwal [2]


Abstract: Aim of the study: The study is aimed to investigate the effectiveness of motor relearning along with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation on improving functional mobility in subjects with chronic stroke. Objective of the study: The objective of the study is to enlighten the effectiveness motor relearning along with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation in improving functional mobility in subjects with Chronic stroke. Methodology: Study design: Experimental study design. Sample size: 28 subjects with chronic stroke with functional mobility impairment were selected. Procedure: Twenty eight subjects aged 45 to 55 years with stroke under Brunnstrom recovery stage IV and V were selected and assigned into two groups control group and experimental group with 14 subjects each, control group received PNF and the experimental group received PNF along with motor relearning program for a period of 4 weeks. Outcome measures: Extended timed up and go test (ETUG) was used to evaluate the functional mobility before and after the treatment. Results & Conclusion: The paired t test was used for within group analysis. The t values of control group for ETUG components sit to stand, walk 1, turn, walk 2, turn sit, walk speed ware21.469, 9.234, 35.133, 11.259, 14.587, 29.077 and p value were 0.00 through SPSS. 17 version. The paired t test was used for within group analysis. The t values of experimental group for ETUG components sit to stand, walk 1, turn, walk 2, turn sit, walk speed were 19.795, 21.500, 15.985, 14.343, 18.189, 26.858 and p value were 0.00through SPSS. 17 version. The result showed significant improvement in within group analysis. The unpaired t test was used to analysis between groups. The F value of ETUG components walk 2 and turn sit ware 4.731, 8.217 and p value of the same were 0.038, 0.008 respectively. The result showed that there were significant difference between control and experimental group in walk2 and turn to sit components Hence it can be concluded that PNF along with motor relearning show improvement in functional mobility that subjects treated with PNF alone.
