Abstract:

This study describes the comparison about the most effective cueing strategy (Visual, Auditory and Tactile) in improving balance among stroke patients following a pre and post test performance of the individual patients.The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) was used as a tool for measurement and 27 Stroke Patients from Pain and stroke rehabilitation center and SRMCOT department in Chennai, India participated in the session. The outcome of this study shows minimal differences in all the cueing with tactile having the highest score. This follows researches which affirm that there is a need for individual cueing analysis in order to stand out the best among all cueing strategies (by Paulette M. Van Vliet Et- Allin July 2006, research group). Any of the cueing strategies can facilitate balance control in hemiplegic stroke patient and help the patient maintains a proper center of gravity and therapeutic implementation of task with relevance to balance and control.
