Botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A), deep brain stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, kinesio taping, splinting, shock-wave therapy, and constraint induced movement therapy
have provided promising results for the treatment of focal dystonia.10-14s To date, none of these interventions in combination have been adopted for the treatment of post-stroke focal dystonia.
Experimental group was treated with Constraint Induced Movement Therapy
(CIMT) and control group was treated with motor relearning programme (MRP) for three consecutive weeks.
Modified Constraint Induced Movement therapy
combined with Bimanual training (Mcimt-BIT) in children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy: how are improvements in arm- hand use established?
Improved motor performance after Constraint Induced Movement therapy
in chronic stroke.
The main focus of all neuro-developmental approaches is the re-learning process through repetition of tasks which improves the neural plasticity in post stroke.1 The constraint induced movement therapy
to promote the utilization of affected limb is considered a good option in acute rehabilitation.2 The concept of virtual reality training to improve the functional and motivational level of stroke patients is also in practice.3 Task oriented is widely established motor re-learning approach which directly enhances the functional status through repetitive activities in enriched environment.4 Lack of interest, proper follow up, motivation, and accurate task repetition practice are the draw backs in the process of re-learning.
