Introduction: Some new methods of treatment focus on using the Magnetic stimulation as a means of induction currents in the brain to produce therapeutic effects. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of rTMS plus routine rehabilitation on hand stiffness in hemiplegic patients, and compare them with pure routine rehabilitation program. Methods and materials: 12 hemiplegic patients were assigned randomly in two groups. Control group, received rehabilitation program with placebo magnetic stimulation, andexperimental group, received magnetic stimulation with routine rehabilitation program for 10 session, 3 times/week. Pre and post of treatment, evaluations done by Wrist Robo Hab. Results: In control group, flextion and pronation muscle stiffness showed nonsignificant improvement (p=0.291, p=0.207) but in experimental group, showed significant improvement (p=0.035, p=0.009). Conclusions: rTMS can improve hand muscle force and function in chronic hemiplegic patients, when conventional treatment is not effective.
