Brief Summary

The aim of this randomized controlled trial is to determine the effects of ROOD's sensory motor training along with Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) in sub-acute stroke. Two randomized groups of patients with stroke were treated with conservative physical therapy and the experimental group was given ROOD's SMT and CIMT in conjunction with conservative rehabilitation. Both, male and female patients meeting the inclusion criteria were included. Patients having other neurological disease, chronic disease, not compatible being participates in CIMT or with any surgical intervention were excluded.

Detailed Description

The study is aimed at determining the effects of ROOD's sensory motor training along with constraint induced movement therapy in sub-acute stroke and is being conducted in National Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine Islamabad and Pakistan Railway General Hospital, Rawalpindi (Feb 2019-July 2019). Sample size of the study is 36 patients, 36 were included in the study on the basis of inclusion criteria, 18 for each group. Patients were allocated randomly and equally in each group. Similar conservative rehabilitation protocol was designed for both control and experimental group except for experimental group had ROOD's sensory motor training and CIMT training. Patients were examined at 1st visit before administration of any treatment and at 6th week which was also the last one (after completing 6 weeks sessions at alternate days). Baseline evaluation for demographics and assessment was taken. Fugyl-meyer assessment scale(FMA) and Wolf motor function test(WMFT) as measuring tools were used for first and 6th week assessment. 29 patients completed the study while 4 patient from control group and 3 patients from experiment group were lost to follow up and were considered drop outs.
