Abstract

According to the WHO, the second most prevalent cause of death worldwide is a non-communicable condition called stroke. According to DALY (disability-adjusted life-year), Indonesia has the second-highest rate of stroke deaths after Mongolia, with 3,382.2/100,000 people. Physical difficulties brought on by this illness includes issues with language and communication. Communication and language difficulties brought on by brain damage are referred to aphasia. Aphasia affects 21-38% of patients with acute stroke, and its effects include short- and long-term morbidity, high death rates, and patient social interaction restrictions. A case study of a 63-year-old patient who spent four days in the Dungus Regional General Hospital and complained of right-side weakness. Despite having trouble speaking, the patient can understand other people's language and instructions. The patient was relaxing after working in the fields before developing problems. The patient's first stroke occurred in 2020, and he later complained of facial pain and trouble walking. The patient had a history of coronary heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension. An increase in the 3rd therapy was seen in a case study that involved an acute ischemic stroke patient treated at the Dungus Regional General Hospital with positioning, sweep tapping and approximation, passive ROM, and PNF for three days. Joint range of motion and muscle tone both exhibit improvements. The patient's capacity to respond to the therapist is also being developed.
