Background: Sitting balance dysfunction is commonly experienced following stroke. Physiotherapists utilize interventions to address this problem but it is unclear whether treatment type, target or practice intensity may affect outcomes. Objective: To compare the effects of standard physiotherapy to standard physiotherapy plus an additional physiotherapy treatment after stroke. Data Sources: The databases of Cochrane Library, CINAHL, Embase, Ovid Medline, AMED, and the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro) up to December 2014 were searched. Study Selection: Randomized controlled trials in English reported in peer-reviewed journals regarding the effect of additional physiotherapy on sitting balance were retrieved. Data Extraction: The PEDro scale was used to assess study quality.
