Background and Aim: Sensory defects are one of the common complications of stroke. Various studies have reported the prevalence of these deficits in stroke patients between 11% and 85%. These defects in the upper limb of the hemiplegic are different from the lack of primary senses to more complex perceptions, and they reduce the use of the affected limb, Weakness in fine motor manipulation of objects, weakness in the skills of getting, and ultimately leads to a decrease in the level of activity on the affected side and ultimately a decrease in the quality of life of the individual. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of extroceptive and proprioceptive sensory stimulation on ADL, and motor function of upper limb in stroke patients.
Materials and Methods: This interventional study was a blind clinical trial that was performed on 60 patients with chronic stroke. Prior to intervention, upper limb function (Fugle-Meyer test) and activity of daily living (Barthel test) were evaluated and then the treatment phase was started. Patients in this phase were treated for extroceptive and proprioceptive sensory stimulation for 6 weeks. Treatment was based on the Rood approach.
Results: The results of this study showed that the intervention group has significant improvement in motor function (p <0.0001) and activity of daily living of upper limb (P <0.0001).
Conclusion: Based on the results, it can be implied that extroceptive and proprioceptive sensory stimulation is an effective method on motor function and activity of daily living of the stroke patient’s upper limb.
