The study was done to determine the effectiveness of constraint induced movement therapy in improving range of motion of hemiparetic stroke patients. Range of motion of the affected upper extremities was measured using a goniometer prior to constrain-induced movement therapy. During treatment implementation, the participants were instructed to restrain the unaffected extremities using a sling and to use the affected hand during the occupational therapy management session. After 24 sessions, range of motion of the affected upper extremities was measured. Results show that there is a significant improvement in the range of motion of the affected extremities of the participants after the Constraint Induced Movement Therapy Program. Good compliance of the participants and good family support contributed to the success of the study.
