Abstract
Background: A significant non-communicable illness with growing socioeconomic significance in ageing populations is stroke. Speech and language issues are frequent aftereffects of stroke that have a substantial negative influence on the everyday lives of stroke survivors. Any stroke or language stage can be affected by a stroke, which may cause one or more aphasias. Aphasia is caused by a disruption of the early stage involving the language message's structure and norms.
Objective: To assess the efficacy of traditional language therapy vs traditional language therapy combined with constraint-induced language therapy in the treatment of Broca's aphasia following an ischemic stroke.
Material and Method: Convenient sampling was used to select 30 individuals with Ischemic Stroke Broca's Aphasia who meet the study's inclusion criteria. Study design that is almost experimental. A four-month period was spent doing the study (5 sittings per week). Conventional language therapy and Constraint induced language therapy techniques were used.
Results: The mean value of Group B was 32.6 and that of Group A was 21.07, with a mean difference of 11.53 indicating a substantial increase in language function in Group B as a result of the intervention.
Conclusion: According to the findings, conventional language treatment combined with constraint-induced language therapy is superior to conventional language therapy for improving language function in ischemic stroke-related Broca's.
