Abstract

Aim: A hold relax technique of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitations and Static Stretching were used to improve gait parameter in hemiplegic patients.
Methodology: A total of 30 patients were selected. Interventions were given for three times per day for six days in a week for four weeks, which consisted of hold relax technique of Propriceptive Neuromuscular Fascilitation or Static Stretching of knee extensors and ankle plantar flexors muscle of hemiplegic stroke patients.
Results: T test was applied, mean ± standard deviation of each group was compared and the P value was taken less than 0.05 for significant differences.
Conclusions: There was significant differences in the gait parameter (stride length, cadence and walking velocity) between two groups A & B treated with hold relax technique of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation and Static Stretching.
