How do You Think a mirror could be used in medical therapy
Transcript of How do You Think a mirror could be used in medical therapy
Phantom Limb Phenomenon
Do you think a mirror could be used in medical therapy ?
It is a phenomenon in which patients who undergo amputation often feel sensation of the missing limb as if it still present .
Phantom limb phenomenon ?!
Invasion of the areas neighbouring the representation of the ambutated limb into the cortical representation zone was shown to be related to phantom limb pain (PLP) intensity .
WE MUST ACCEPT FINITE DISAPPOINMENT, BUT NEVER LOSE INFINITE HOPE.
Do you remember the mirror ?
- Mirorr therapy (MT) leds to a pain reduction by 27%,
- MT induced a number of effects in the phantom arm
including movement and the alleviation of pain.
- Improvement of the amputated limb movement by three folds due to relief of pain
These results are promising for amputees in case of :-
1- Appropriate duration of MT.
2- Clear movement
1-Telescoping:the amputee feel his/her distal extremity of the limb at the point of amputation.
2-the cognitive ability of the patient to correlate between the visualized limb and the phantom limbtreatment.
