Abstract:

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation techniques have been used in stroke rehabilitation since decades. Cross education training, a recent advancement, yet a very effective tool that is being used in stroke rehabilitation in which recovery is achieved on the affected side by training the non-affected side using the theory of Motor learning and Neuroplasticity. Mirror therapy has also been used in stroke rehabilitation which has got a positive outcome in many studies which is based on the theory of Biofeedback. Previously these techniques have been used mostly individually in studies. Very few studies have been done to see the combined effect by adding mirror therapy either with PNF or with Cross education training. By far, no study has been done to compare the better combination out of these two. So, this study will focus on the comparison of the two combined techniques to find out the combination with better outcome.
