  1. Fr Friedman test, Sig. bet. periods was done using post hoc test (Dunn’s)
  2. NIHSS National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, mRS modified ranking score
  3. P = P value for comparing between the different periods
  4. P1 = P value for comparing between the initial and each periods
  5. P2 = P value for comparing between upon discharge and after 6 months
  6. *Statistically significant at P ≤ 0.05
