Background: Stroke is the sudden occurrence of permanent damage to an area of the brain caused by a blocked blood vessel or bleeding within the brain. Aim and objective: To assess the outcome of rehabilitation in stroke survivors in various parameters at regular intervals. Materials and methods: This prospective randomized control study was performed in a tertiary-care teaching institution of North India. One hundred patients fulfilling World Health Organization criteria for stroke were selected for this study. Subjects were assessed by computed tomography scan findings and Barthel index at time of admission and follow-up.
