Samia Anjum

32 years old lady Samiya came to the RCPD Physiotherapy department one month ago. After clinical examination, she was diagnosed with Hemiplegia (HP) by RCPD physiotherapists’ team. Because of Hemiplegia her half part of the body had been paralyzed. She was facing difficulties in maintaining her balance of body due to limb weaknesses leading to an inability to properly shift body weight. Moreover, she was not able to stand and walk.

During her treatment RCPD physiotherapy team worked on the improvement of her sensation and motor abilities. Different strategies have been used for treatment include promoting the use of the hemiparetic limb during functional tasks, maintaining range of motion, and using neuromuscular electrical stimulation to decrease spasticity and increase awareness of the limb. Physiotherapy team also worked on her muscle strength & coordination, mobility (such as standing and walking).
