The purpose of this study is how the effect of Range of Motion and deep breathing exercise (DBE) in increasing muscle strength of post-stroke patients who are treated at Pariaman Hospital.

The research design was a quasi-experimental design with a one-group before and intervention design. The population of this study were post-stroke patients who were treated at RSUD Pariaman. Sampling was purposive sampling, amounting to 40 respondents. The data were processed and analyzed univariate and bivariate.

The results showed that there was a difference in the mean value of muscle strength before the therapy was 2.75 with a standard deviation of 0.439 and after the therapy was 3.50 with a standard deviation of 0.506. The results of statistical tests show that the value of p = 0.000 means that there is a significant difference between the mean value of muscle strength in patients before the procedure and after ROM and DBE therapy.
