Abstract :

Stroke is the thir d leading cause of death and the primary cause of long term disability . It is a sudden, focal neurological deficit resulting fr om ischemic (or) hemorrhagic lesions in the brain. It affects more than six lakhs people all over the world each year . In the analysis and interpr etation of Functional independence scale and Barthel Index of Bobath approach, There was a significant in the FIM scales pre test (M= 67.3, SD=0.96) and post test (M= 74.9, SD=0.96) t(9)=25.01, P ≤ 0.01 which showed that ther e was significant impr ovement in ADL following Bobath approach.
