Abstract

Background

Stroke is considered to be a leading cause of impairment. After experiencing strokes, patients are frequently left with impaired motor function, making it difficult to carry out daily tasks. The most extensively researched method for treating stroke patients in recent decades is CIMT (constraint-induced movement therapy), which was developed to treat upper limb deficits following stroke. CIMT entails limiting the use of the unaffected limb, altering behavior to increase the use of the affected limb, and finally, mass-training of the affected limb.

Objective

The current study aimed to determine the effectiveness of CIMT through TR for upper extremity function in stroke patients.

Materials and methods

Thirty post-stroke participants were selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria, and allocated into group A and group B. Group A was treated with CIMT in the physiotherapy department and group B was treated with CIMT through TR. Outcome measures were the Fugl-Meyer Assessment scale for upper extremities (FMA-UE), the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT), and the Motor Activity Log (MAL).

Results

Both groups showed significant improvements in FMA-UE, WMFT and MAL-A0U, MAL-Q0M scores. However, there were no significant differences between groups A and B in FMA-UE, WMFT, MAL-AOU, and MAL-QOM scores in the inter-group analysis.

Conclusion

CIMT via TR was equally effective than CIMT in physiotherapy department for upper extremity function in stroke. Further studies should be conducted to identify the long-term effectiveness of this approach.
