Aim: To find out the effectiveness of Trunk Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Techniques to improve Trunk Control in stroke patients. Statistical analysis: For all studies we calculated the mean difference and pooled the standard deviation of the baselines and at next assessment. The relevant studies for our meta analysis were identified by manual searches from google scholar. Total number of participants was 75 in 4 studies. The age range was 43 to 78.1 yrs with the mean age of 60.55…

Effect of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Technique versus Trunk Mobility Exercises On Improving Trunk Control In Hemiplegic Patients-A Comparative Study
TLDR
More evidence is provided to support the use of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation as compared to Trunk Mobility Exercises for improving trunk control in post stroke hemiplegic case.
Effects of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Techniques on Bed Mobility, Transfer and Early Trunk Control in Acute Stroke Patients
TLDR
It was concluded that PNF based trunk exercise showed more improvement in Group A (Trunk stability exercises using PNF techniques) when compared with conventional training.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation-Based Physical Therapy on the Improvement of Balance and Gait in Patients with Chronic Stroke: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
It is indicated that PNF is a potential treatment strategy in chronic stroke rehabilitation on balance and gait speed and further high-quality research is required for concluding a consensus of intervention and research on PNF.
Effect of core strengthening with pelvic proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation on trunk, balance, gait, and function in chronic stroke
TLDR
The results indicated that core stabilisation combined with pelvic PNF was more effective for improving trunk impairment, balance and gait of chronic stroke patients.
Transcranial direct current stimulation combined with trunk-targeted, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation in subacute stroke: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Trunk-targeted PNF combined with bihemispheric tDCS along with CPT engender larger improvements in upper extremity and trunk impairment, upper limb function, gait speed, and quality of life in the subacute stroke population.

Effectiveness of Pelvic Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Technique on Facilitation of Trunk Movement in Hemiparetic Stroke Patients
TLDR
Post-intervention, both the groups shows improvement on trunk performance, range of motion, balance and gait but the experimental group shows more improvement than control group.
Trunk rotatory muscle performance in post-stroke hemiplegic patients.
TLDR
In the hemiplegic patients, the direction of trunk rotation does not affect the trunk rotatory muscle performance, although the performance itself was slightly decreased.
Dynamic analysis of trunk flexion after stroke.
Role of Trunk Rehabilitation on Trunk Control, Balance and Gait in Patients with Chronic Stroke: A Pre-Post Design
TLDR
The exercises consisted of selective trunk movement of the upper and the lower part of trunk had shown larger effect size index for trunk control and balance than for gait in patients with chronic stroke.
Comparison of physio ball and plinth trunk exercises regimens on trunk control and functional balance in patients with acute stroke: a pilot randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The trunk exercises performed on the physio ball are more effective than those performed onThe plinth in improving both trunk control and functional balance in acute stroke patients, suggesting a task-specific effect and also a carry-over effect.
Analysis and Comparison of the Psychometric Properties of Three Balance Measures for Stroke Patients
TLDR
The Postural Assessment Scale for Stroke Patients showed slightly better psychometric characteristics than the other 2 measures, and showed very acceptable levels of reliability, validity, and responsiveness for both clinicians and researchers.
Interrater and Intrarater Reliability of the Tinetti Balance Test for Individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
TLDR
The results suggest that the Tinetti Balance Test is reliable for examination of individuals with ALS in Stages I-III by physical therapists and physical therapy students.
Balance disability after stroke.
TLDR
Investigation of the frequency of balance disability; to characterize different levels of disability; and to identify demographics, stroke pathology factors, and impairments associated with balance disability found subjects with the most severe balance disability had more severe strokes, impairments, and disabilities.
